What do you love most about Your City?

What I love about living in St. Louis is that it’s a mid-sized city with a generally conservative feel. It’s an incredible place to raise a family.

Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?

My favorite breakfast is comprised of scrambled eggs, hash browns, wheat toast, tea and OJ, and my favorite restaurant for breakfast is Sunny Side Café or First Watch.

What are you doing at:

6:00 AM – I am up talking on the phone with my team members and partners across the globe since we are present in almost every time zone.

10:00 AM – I am wrapping up morning calls and getting ready for office to deal with matters in the Central time zone.

12:00 PM - Favorite Power Lunch spot/meal?

Most of my lunches are home cooked and eaten in my office because it offers me the opportunity to keep lunches light and keep in touch with team members throughout the world.

7:00 PM – I spend time with my family and begin winding up for calls with our offices throughout the world.

11:00 PM – I catch up on the news of the day and continue talking with our team members from throughout the world.

What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?

In the morning I have a five-fruit smoothie. For the rest of the day I drink water. I probably drink nearly two gallons of water.

Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?

My most used app is Fyndus.

I don’t have a favorite Instagram account. I like to study how Instagram is growing exponentially as the choice app for a selling products and merchandise.

What should everyone try at least once?

Everyone should hike a mountain. The thrill of climbing to the top of a mountain is like achieving a life-long goal.

Where do you enjoy getting lost?

It depends, sometimes with people at a trade show or expo, and sometimes just getting lost in my work to make Fyndus a global e-commerce leader.
