When he isn’t on a web meeting, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two young daughters making YouTube videos, trying out new recipes in the kitchen, or jamming out on the guitar drums and mic! Our Lucy dog loves taking walks and playing bubbles with the girls. She is representing the dog section of the pet profile below!

But seriously, all proper leadership pages should have cute pet photos!
