|EDUCATION||University of Florida (BA)|
|SOMETHING SURPRISING||I am about family first. Regardless of what major development or transaction I am working on or whoever I may be in a meeting with, if my wife or kids call, I walk out and talk to them. The second most surprising thing about me that only my closest friends know is that I love gardening.|
|NEW HOBBY||I started playing golf again on a more regular basis after a 30-year hiatus.|
