Personal style: Wear whatever makes you feel good.
Words to live by: If it’s worth doing, do it right.

How he spends a free day: I really enjoy doing anything with my wife and children—dining, movies, golf, relaxing, and spending time outdoors.
Guilty pleasure: Fudge-stuffed chocolate chip cookies.
