Where did you grow up/what did you like about living there?
I was born and raised in Apopka, FL. I like that Apopka doesn’t have the hustle and bustle of a big city but is only 15-30 minutes away from any and everything.
What is your role at Thumbprint?
I’m a Client Experience Director at Thumbprint. I have the opportunity to work alongside our clients each and every day to ensure their projects and campaigns turn out exactly how they envisioned them! It’s such a satisfying feeling when a client’s needs are not only met but exceeded!
How long have you been with Thumbprint?
I’ve been with Thumbprint for a year and a half now – time flies when you’re having fun!
What is your favorite thing about working at Thumbprint?
My favorite thing about Thumbprint is the family atmosphere and the camaraderie within the building. I consider Thumbprint my extended family.
What do you like about working in the brand logistics industry?
I know we say it all the time, but we are passionate about being who our clients need us to be – day in and day out. The challenge of helping clients solve their headaches never gets old!
What is it you like most about working on the Client Experience team?
The constant competition within the team. We strive each and every day to make each other better. There is never a dull moment being on this team – it’s a blast!
Do you have any hidden talents or hobbies?
I’m new-ish to smoking meat and other foods, so I love the process of prepping, smoking, and enjoying the outcome! You can’t beat the smell when you fire up the smoker! The best part is there is no “right” or “wrong” way to smoke meat, so it’s nearly impossible to mess something up!
What show are you currently binge-watching?
I’m really into Peaky Blinders right now and Ted Lasso for the second time, as my wife has now discovered how great it is. P.S. American football is life!
Steak and Potatoes – all day, every day.
I don’t read enough, but when I do it’s to my 7-moth old daughter, Bailey.
Favorite place you’ve ever traveled to?
St. Maarten. My wife and I were there on our honeymoon. It was absolutely spectacular.
If you could be any superhero, who would you be and why?
The Hulk! I mean, look at that guy. He has superhuman strength and he’s also incredibly durable!
What was your favorite TV show when you were growing up?
I know this sounds weird, but my favorite tv show was SportsCenter. I love sports, so I wanted to catch up on everything that happened after I went to bed.
What’s the weirdest fact you know?
Not sure it’s a weird fact, but the Dolphins recorded the longest sack in the NFL history last year against Pat Mahomes – it was a 30-yard sack.
What’s something you want to do in the next year that you’ve never done before?
I would love to take a trip out to the Western side of the US and explore many of the national landmarks it has to offer.
Fun Fact about yourself?
I am the youngest of 6 kids (4 boys, 2 girls total) – with a 12.5-year age gap between me and my oldest sibling.
