What was the best business advice you ever received?
Always take time to listen.
If you could choose another profession, what would it be?
I'd be a paramedic. I joined the EMT force in New Jersey for nine years and I loved it. It was an all-volunteer job while I was going through high school and college.
What is the biggest risk you've taken in your career?
Starting my own company. I never questioned my potential but it was financially and emotionally tasking. Also, during that time my wife got pregnant with our second child. But it's the path I chose and it's who I am, I didn't second guess my decision to do it.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you start?
Bora Bora, because I'm fascinated by those little hotel room-like huts on the water and because of the culture and I love the ocean. I live here because I love water.
