Getting the Edge on Michael
Most desired vacation destination:
The United Kingdom. I would love to play golf where it all originated and learn more about the ones who came before me. (I have English, Scottish and Irish blood)
Who inspires you:
My son inspires me. I love his passion and zest for life. People always told me, “Wait until you have a son of you own because he will be just like you.” Sure enough, Jace is a carbon copy of me, and I’ve realized what the true meaning of patience is.
Rock and Country. My go-to band is Pearl Jam. Go-to song is Dissident.i
Golfing, traveling and Google searching worldly facts and sports statistics. I’m a big trivia fan!
Favorite thing to do outside of work:
Hang out with my son, Jace. Playing sports, watching sports or doing whatever he wants to do. Michael is also an avid golfer and is always up for people taking his money on the links.
What are your 3 favorite movies:
Hoosiers, Shawshank Redemption and Remember the Titans. Each of these is inspiring in their own way. The quintessential underdog in the Hoosiers. The ultimate reclamation of life in the Shawshank Redemption and the story of togetherness and teamwork in Remember the Titans.
If you could time travel, where would you go:
I am “that guy.” With the knowledge I have now I would travel back to my 14 year old self and do high school sports all over again.
“Luck is where preparation meets opportunity.”
