This is his stuff:
Polo Collared Shirt: Dressed up or dressed down, it’s the way to start a happy day!
Watch & Ring: Some of the best gifts my wife has given me. Reminds me to seize the time and also know that tomorrow starts a new day.
Car Key: A vital necessity to living in Florida. A reminder to be grateful for the little things. Like air conditioning!
Phone: My assistant for everything. The best tool and hindrance to creativity, connecting and communicating. An essential help in between - capturing the coolest moments with the kiddos!
Golf ball: My new passion, the soccer style connects me to the love and suffering of my youth.
Nivea: So I can look 30 when I’m 50!
IPad - Disconnected from Wi-Fi, it’s been a blessing to scale my love for a journal. I’m always amazed how light my soul feels getting things out of my head and onto paper!
Pencil: It’s amazing how much strategy and dreams come to life when listening and writing things down. The 2nd is because I misplace things all the time!
Pen: Purchased when in Australia 🇦🇺 as best man for my childhood friend. It’s a reminder that some things are just worth putting in extra effort to write the best story.
Shoes: Whether in business meetings, running around with the kiddos or date night with Kelli, the Zerogrand helps me remain comfortable in myself and walk content in my happy place as I pursue big dreams.
