love that almost all of my days are never the same at vXchnge, and I get the opportunity to work with fantastic people every single day as well (Customers and coworkers). I not only get the chance to learn something new each day about our industry, but I learn a lot about my customers’ industries as welDo you have a favorite mdWhat wouldIf you could witness any histoical eventWho has had the biggest influence on your life?Any CrossFit event.  Local events/Wodapalooza, I cheer on my friends from CrossFit KOP; Larger scale events – Cody Mooney, Nick Urankar, Cassidy Lance-Mcwherter

My parents, without a doubt. Without their sacrifice, guidance and love, I would not be the man I am today or be as successful as I am today. I owe them more than I could ever repay. 

 

What is one object you feel like you could sell to anyone?

Running Shoes! I worked for Adidas for many years when I was younger, selling shoes and apparel - I think that I’d be able to sell the right shoes, for the right need, to the right person, with ease! Selling sneakers is where I developed a passion for wanting to help customers become successful in what they’re trying to achieve. It might have been that they were competitively running a marathon, they ran occasionally to stay in shape, or they were going walking around their neighborhood. Everyone needs the right pair of running shoes.

So I ride a bike regularly, but I am working on lifting weights much more often. As we get older, strength and stability become very importan

How do you prefer to start your day?

I like to wake up early, go downstairs and grab a cup of coffee, get the dog her breakfast, eat my breakfast and read for a little bit about industry related news, customers or about how to be a better leader.
