Faces in business:

Title: Vice president of public policy and small business

Company: Manatee Chamber of Commerce, 222 10th St. W., Bradenton

What was the best business advice you ever received?

My mom and dad told me to keep an open mind, listen to others and don't believe you're always right.

If you could choose another profession, what would it be?

Professional tennis players winning a couple of grand slams, but I found the most perfect profession as I am involved with an organization that continues to enhance our community's quality of life.

What is the biggest risk you've taken in your career?

After studying and passing the bar exam in Bradenton, I chose to move Tallahassee without a job. That took some time, but I met my wife up there.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you start?

We live in paradise ... but my wife and I are going to visit Barcelona, Spain.
