What are you most proud of at CS&A?
Our team. It's a smart, hard-charging group, but above that, we really enjoy one another. It makes going to work a pleasure. So maybe “grateful” more than proud. I'm grateful to work with all these folks.
What is your favorite smell?
I love the smell of gardenias. A little hokey, but they remind me of my late grandparents’ home in Aiken, South Carolina.
What or who inspires you?
Curvy mountain roads. My wife. Amazing Grace. Roger Federer.
