It is not always an easy balance but I am fortunate to have a position that allows for me to have some flexibility in my schedule to accommodate the needs of my family and a company that understands the importance of family relationships.

Like most relationships, communication and planning is an important element in maintaining a healthy balance.
What’s the best piece of “dad advice” you’ve gotten so far?
The best piece of “dad advice” I have gotten so far is to appreciate the little things and to make big memories with small opportunities. We all love to spoil our children with an elaborate vacation or an over the top birthday gift, but the simplest acts can be the most impactful. A walk through the neighborhood, cooking dinner together, a repair project around the house, or family movie night can all be ingredients for a special moment.
