In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing. – Theodore Roosevelt
3. What is your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?
Definitely spending time with my wife, watching our newborn son grow.
4. If you could have a superpower for one day, what would it be?

5. What would you recommend someone do or see who has never been to Atlanta before?
Go to Decatur!

Seeing how productive a strong team can be, and knowing that I helped contribute to its success.
9. If you could have lunch with a famous person – dead or alive – who would it be and why?
