What drew you to work on the Jays Care Foundation board of directors?
I have a love for all things baseball which makes working with Jays Care a real treat. I also love giving back and seeing how my contributions to Jays Care have impacted a child’s life. It may be something as small as donating movie tickets to a silent auction, but the money raised from that goes directly to helping a child participate in baseball camps or rebuilding ball parks.
How do you apply your skills from day-to-day work to what you do on the Young Professionals Board?
I’m a well-connected guy. If the boards needs something from me. I’m always there to help.
What has been your biggest accomplishment with the board so far?
I wouldn’t say there is one specific accomplishment that I’m most proud of, but several smaller accomplishments. I’ve been with Jays Care for 3 years now and I’m most proud of being consistent. Every year I’ve always donated items to help raise funds, which directly helps the kids or donating my time.
Your biggest accomplishment outside of the Board?
Someone once asked me “ what is business to you ?” my answer to that person was “ relationship building and being a good person “. In business I believe there is nothing more important than building solid relationships and being a good person. By following those two key mindsets. It’s sky rocketed my career to new heights.
What will your role be at the Extra Innings event and what are you most excited about for this year’s event?
I’m coming with a few clients so I’m excited to show them all of the great work we do with Jays Care in hopes that it’ll inspire them to get out and do great things in their community.
What do you do to unwind after a day of work?
Honestly, I can be kind of a boring person sometimes. If I have nothing to do after work I like to grab a bite to eat and go to bed early. Haha.
How do you stay motivated?
