What was the best business advice you ever received?
To invest in yourself.
If you could choose another profession, what would it be?
I would be playing music professionally. I had a scholarship and was bound to become a musician. My main instruments were drums and guitar.
What's the biggest risk you have taken in your career?
Starting my first dental practice in 2008 right at the economic downturn. Then, realizing we were not happy in the area where we were living, and woke up one day and decided to sell that practice to move to Sarasota, where we now feel like we are home.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you start?
The Maldives for scuba diving. Some of the most beautiful undamaged reefs are located there. I'm a free diver and like to spear fish.
