What's something on your bucket list? 

I'd love to rent an RV and travel from Atlanta to San Diego, then make my way up the Pacific coast to Seattle 

What's your favorite place you've traveled to and why?  

Italy. The preservation of ancient architecture and its unique culture make it a great place to visit. I'm grateful to have recently married my wife, Elisa, in the country as well. 

Favorite family tradition: 

For each person's birthday, my family gathers for dinner and takes turns sharing what we've loved most about the person over the past year 

What did you want to be when you were small?  

I was interested in a lot of jobs, but being a firefighter usually topped the list 

My latest book recommendation: 

“Mindset” by Carol Dweck  

My life story in exactly one sentence:  

“Empire of the Summer Moon” by S.C. Gwynne. It's a great historical account of the harsh realities faced during Manifest Destiny of the U.S. in the 1800s, especially by Native Americans 

My favorite restaurant in Atlanta:  

Amore Amore. It's a unique restaurant with great food and a fun atmosphere 

My favorite comfort food or family recipe:  

Every year I look forward to the white chocolate bark my mom makes during the Christmas season
