What would you tell your younger self? Learn to forgive quicker and move on. Its ok to say your sorry and ask for forgiveness. Never assume that when you have messed up that you cant take your problems to your parents and ask for help.

What was your major in college? I did not attend college. College is great for some but not everyone. The world is full of vocational and skilled positions that dont require college degrees. Apprenticeships and on job training got me to where I wanted to be. I worked harder and used every opportunity to learn my job field through hands on.

How do you balance your work and personal life? Often times one has more importance, and we’re curious to know how you’ve handled the balance. I can say that I over worked myself for a very long time. About 3 years before COVID I decided I wanted to be with my family more then at work. It seems that Last summer a lot of people realized the same thing while working from home. There has been a revival in the family and people are taking notice that they wasted so much time working instead of being with there family, playing outside with there kids, and keeping in touch with distant family members.

What is your favorite quote? “Don’t stop until your proud.”
