What is the first thing you do when you get in the office?
Well, I generally come in at least fifteen minutes late. I use the side door–that way Lumberg can’t see me. After that I sorta space out for an hour.
How do you take your caffeine?
What do you like to work on first thing in the morning?
Deleting emails that have nothing to do with me an no bearing at all on my job
What do you like most about your job?
Seeing my team succeed and helping them to support the Tuscano staff well and produce exceptional products and IT systems.
What do you like the most about being in the insurance industry?
The great people I meet and have the privilege of working with.
What were you shocked to discover about the wholesale insurance business?
Wholesale insurance has more acronyms than you can shake a stick at.
What is your favorite chore?
Feeding my horses.
For stress relief you:
horse, run, bike, motorcycle, kayak, play guitar.... anything but look at a computer screen
Strangest risk you ever worked on
I kayaked the class V+ Green River Narrows at 240% on the old gauge, is that risky enough?
Not everyone knows I:
Live in the San Juan mountains of Colorado
How I ended up in Western Pensylvania:
In western Pennsylvania where I was born and raised, on the playground is where I spent most of my days. Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool. And all shooting some b-ball outside of the school.
Your passions in life:
I'm passionate about making decisions I'll have no regrets about
If you could do anything at all, what would it be?
Our high school guidance counselor used to ask us what you would do if you had a million dollars and didn't have to work. And invariably, whatever you'd say, that was supposed to be your career. So if you wanted to fix old cars, then you're supposed to be an auto mechanic.
Do you have any pets?
2 horses and 2 dogs
I am addicted to:
endorphines and adrenaline
What was/is the first position you held at Tuscano Agency?
Help Desk/Desktop Support
What was the first job you ever had?
I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around--nobody big, I mean--except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff--I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them.
