Outside of work, he loves spending time with his family. He also cycles as often as possible in between family commitments. To relax, he enjoys a difficult crossword or jigsaw puzzle. When not challenging himself, he and his wife spend time with their foundation, “Katie’s Love of Reading”. The foundation collects then donates new and used books to Children’s hospitals around the south-land. Last year alone, donations topped over 17,000 books to local hospitals!
“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
