Where do you call home? Vestavia Hills, Ala.

What is your current role at Southern Power? I am a Business Development Manager, responsible for maintaining and expanding customer relationships within the Southeast.

Describe your energy market in three words. Change is constant.

What are your hobbies? Outside of spending time with my family, I enjoy doing house projects, training for triathlons and reading books while the New York Yankees are on TV.

What’s the best vacation you’ve taken? My favorite vacation would be any of my trips to a coastal area with waves, sun and sand. 

Favorite food. My favorite food is Mexican. 

If you were stuck on an island, what three things would you bring? If I am truly stuck and can’t get away with a canoe, I’d bring a machete, a large tarp and my Bible. 

Tell us something we might not know about you. In 2019, I started the goal of trying to do a triathlon in all 50 states. I’m hoping to have eight checked off by the end of 2020. 

What is the last book you read? I always have a few books that I’m reading and recently finished. A few that come to mind are; On the Road with St. Augustine by James K.A. Smith, Working by Robert Caro and Talking to Strangers by Malcolm Gladwell.

Tell us something on your bucket list. I would like to complete a triathlon in all 50 states. 

What is the first thing you’d buy if you won the lottery? I would pay off my mortgage. 

What is your biggest pet peeve? My biggest pet peeve is when people have a lack of text message etiquette. For example, conversing back and forth with one person in a group text, hitting send after every sentence as opposed to texting one complete thought and an overuse of emojis. 

Do you have a hidden talent? I can wiggle my ears. 

What are you currently watching on Netflix? I’m not a big TV watcher outside of watching live sports.
