Why did you choose to come to work at Balentine?
I was immediately drawn to the team-based approach and the culture that it produces. Balentine is a place where the person beside you wants to see you succeed and grow in your career as much as you do.
What inspires you to come to work each day?
I’m inspired by my colleagues who, with their varied backgrounds and unique skill sets, come together in a team-based manner for the greater good of serving our clients and helping them meet their goals.
What is the most exotic place you have ever been?
My wife and I traveled to Bali, Indonesia, for our honeymoon in 2017.
If you weren’t in this business, what would you be doing?
I would, in some way, shape, or form, be involved in the golf industry. I love the game and the opportunity to spend time outside enjoying the scenery that so many of the great courses offer.
If you were abandoned on a deserted island, what would you bring?
My wife, Lindsey, and our labradoodle puppy, Sooie. Together, the three of us could survive anything that comes our way!
