What are your retirement dreams?
Be a world traveler with my wife Dayna, attend numerous sporting events and decrease my golf handicap.
Drink of choice?
As I live in wine country I would be remiss if I didn’t include wine (indifferent to white, red and sparkling) but if I had to pick a cocktail I would settle on a Negroni.
What would be your last meal?
Gnocchi with a cream based sauce, a little sprinkle of fresh basil, and a perfectly paired wine will do.
Would you bungee jump?
Nope, I’ve come to realize the benefits of risk aversion with highly risky endeavors.
Anything electric with room for a family.
Where is your dream vacation spot?
Four Seasons, Bora Bora
