What do you like to do with your free time? --- Golfing, skiing, snowboarding, surfing, tennis, ECU sporting events, Durham Bulls games, traveling.
What community cause or charity have you been involved with over the last year? --- I've helped raise money and donated to March of Dimes since 2004, and I donate to Avon 39 breast cancer walk.
Any advice for those thinking of joining the Exchange Club? --- Come to lunch, meet the members and you'll understand. It's a good group of people together for a good cause.
What’s your favorite thing about Durham, NC? --- The revitalization of historic downtown buildings and the speed in which new buildings and projects are taking place. I love the feel and the laid back attitude I encounter when visiting and socializing in the downtown area. Durham is a great place to live, work and play.
Best activity to go out and do in Durham, NC? --- To me nothing beats going to Durham Bulls Baseball Club and DPAC shows.
If you could choose to do anything for a day, what would it be? --- There's lots of items on my bucket list, but right now I'm hooked on golf. So I'd say I would like to travel to Scotland, "the birthplace of golf", and play a round at St. Andrews - the Old course - with family and friends. Maybe a PGA tour player or two for grins.
