I really enjoy all kinds of food, from Italian to seafood to steaks – if they are prepared well. Sushi is about the only type of food that I really don’t eat.
Several years ago I had the opportunity to have dinner with friends at Paul’s Restaurant (owned by well-known chef Paul Albrecht). The meal was custom-prepared for our party and consisted of seven different courses, each with its own unique wine pairing. Everything was just perfect and it was an absolutely amazing experience that I will never forget!
It depends! In the summer time, I enjoy a good margarita or a gin & tonic. But in the winter time I most often find myself having an Old Fashioned, which I enjoy making myself. It also depends on where I am while enjoying a beverage. Something about sitting on a beach in Jamaica that makes rum seem particularly appropriate!
First of all, I can really say that in what I do, no two days are alike. When you work with hundreds of different products and interact with so very many different types of customers, each day is bound to bring a unique set of challenges and opportunities – I really like that. But I would have to say that one aspect of what I do that I find most enjoyable is being able to work with both end users and design-build dealers towards matching our equipment to an existing need – and in the end providing a workable equipment solution to the customer.

I guess you could say I’m a true carnivore, and I especially love good beef. A great quality New York Strip steak or Filet Mignon, properly prepared and cooked to just the right level of doneness is, for me, pretty hard to beat. I could go for that every night of the week!
Great service is what truly makes all the difference, and that is what makes Chops Lobster Bar in Atlanta one of my very favorites. In addition to having an amazing filet and terrific complements, the service there is always “just right” — the staff there are very attentive, prompt and efficient while at the same time not being overly visible. Without exception a delightful and memorable dining experience.
Well, I know that water is what I really NEED to drink, and I do try to drink as much water each day as I possible can (I’m always flavoring it with SOMETHING to make it more interesting). But with a meal, I just LOVE an ice cold Diet Coke with lemon!
In addition to getting to work with an awesome team every day, I do very much enjoy helping to train customers in the use of their new equipment. I know they’ve made a monetary investment in order to derive a certain benefit to their food service operation, and I find it very gratifying when I am able to help them to become expert in utilizing their new kitchen “tool”. It’s a real win-win situation for all because it helps them to take real ownership in the successful use of the equipment and it allows the equipment to be a more valuable resource to them.

A great seared tuna would be my favorite food when available or you can never go wrong with bacon!
The generous pour event at the Capital Grill has always been a great experience that I do every year with friends. The great steak and seafood selections combined with an affordable wine pairing option is an ideal moment to try new wine varieties with great food.
I’d say my favorite drink changes with the season or location. A smoked Old Fashioned is always great for me during colder weather or dinners. In warmer weather or summer months a nice refreshing Mojito or other light drink is always a great change up.

My initial response would be any food that I am sharing with family or friends. Food is always best when shared with those close to you. But when pushed harder for a specific, I would have to reply my favorite food would be something from the local Mexican restaurant – a burrito made to my specific requirements – and of course, the basket of chips and queso dip is a must side.
Great food is typically tied to our favorite restaurant experience, however, for me that experience happens when I am with my family. My greatest experiences (memories) would be dinners on the cruise ship when my wife and four children are together (no cell phones) and sharing a dinner. The dinners are typically after a long day of fun and sun or possibly after an incredible excursion at port that day, but regardless we are together and enjoying each other’s company.
The favorite drink has changed over the years – today, it happens to be that green bottle with the yellow label and black lettering. Some of you are trying to think about liquor bottle may have that type of description. Or maybe a particular wine? Well, guess again … you need to go to the soda aisle to find my drink of choice – that citrus flavored soda Mello Yello happens to be my drink of choice!
I have always stated that my favorite part of my job is having the pleasure of meeting with school nutrition employees. I have had the pleasure of traveling across the country working with school systems. I find that wherever my travels take me, I end up finding (making) friends for a life time. Listening to concerns and helping provide solutions related to equipment needs is my greatest satisfaction.

Mexican would probably be my favorite cuisine. I could eat Mexican food everyday and not tire of it.

Prime Rib is easily my favorite, and I’ve always been a steak lover. I would really like to perfect the task of cooking a great Prime Rib in my Green Egg, though it is still a work in progress!
My wife Shelley and I celebrated our 25th anniversary in Turks and Caicos in October 2018. It was such a beautiful place that it made anywhere we dined and anything we ate while we were there especially enjoyable and memorable.
I thoroughly enjoy a glass of Pinot noir while I am grilling out on my deck. No doubt I have burned up a lot of good steaks because of this.
Without a doubt it is the personal relationships that I have had the opportunity to develop and experience through what I do in my work. I have worked in a number of different parts of our industry over the years, yet there has been one thing that has remained consistent important to me throughout those years – and that is the friendships that I have been blessed to make. Through my years of working on the sales end of our industry I have come to fully realize, at the end of the day, selling is really about building relationships of mutual respect, support and trust.
