Q. What are 5 things you can’t live without and why?!
A. My family because of their unconditional love and support. My son's boat because of the joy it gives me spending time with my family and friends while enjoying the dolphins and wildlife. It also allows me to go fishing with my granddaughters. My cell phone, I hate to say, because of how critical it is in providing information for me to be successful at my job. It also allows me to stay connected to my family, friends, and clients. Music because I have always enjoyed listening to all genres of music. My wife and I enjoy discovering new artists and places to listen. My favorite place is right here in Bluffton, The Roasting Room. And most of all, my beautiful wife Lorie to whom I've been married for the last 38 years. She helps me navigate the ups and downs that life can bring and is always my biggest fan.
