If you could visit any place, where would you go?
I have traveled extensively around the world, but I have always wanted to take a trip to Japan and China.
What is your favorite thing to do in your down time?
I have always enjoyed reading, old movies, and classic cars.
What is your favorite thing about working at St. Pius?
It is a great blessing to me to have the Blessed Sacrament Chapel so close by. I visit it often, especially when I need to reflect on an important decision or meeting. There is nowhere else that one can work and be so close to the real presence of God, that you can just drop in and visit Him whenever you wish.
