MOST ADMIRABLE QUALITY IN MEN:

Hard work and self-discipline. I like what Alabama football coach Nick Saban calls “The Process” — focusing upon what you can control (good daily habits, attention to detail, doing your best) instead of what you can’t control (the outcome).

REMEMBER ME FOR:

Being a loving and devoted father, a good and ethical lawyer, and a flawed but fundamentally good person who loved people and left the world a little better than he found it.

HOW HAVE YOUR EXPERIENCES SHAPED YOU?

I’ve grown more from my mistakes and failures than from my successes and victories.

LESSONS LEARNED FROM THE PANDEMIC:

I learned to never take the small things for granted, much less the big things. I also developed a greater appreciation for the role and importance of science.

PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT:

My proudest accomplishment is co-founding Harmony Health Clinic, a local nonprofit providing free medical and dental care to uninsured and underserved local residents, and staffed by volunteer professionals in a unique atmosphere of caring, compassion, respect, dignity and diversity.
