How do you typically spend your days?

I spend my days at Bankers Life Fieldhouse – I am a Premium Experience Manager and work mainly with our Sells Group Loft Members. Sells Group Loft is a 104-Member Loft located on the Club level and houses 26 four person suites.

Where did you grow up?

I was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Where is your favorite Indy spot?

This is a hard one because I have so many favorites! A few of the places (mainly restaurants) that I frequent on a fairly regular basis include: Taste, Public Greens, Maxine’s Chicken and Waffles, and Bakersfield.

How do you typically travel around the city?

Usually by car.

If you could have coffee with anyone, living or not, who would it be and why? (Bonus points for which Indy coffee joint you’d take them to)

If I could have coffee with anyone (does a couple count?), I would probably choose our former President Obama and his beautiful wife, Michelle Obama. I would take them to Tea’s Me Café, which is now owned by former Fever star player and Olympian, Tamika Catchings.

Thinking forward to the next 5 years in Indy, what are you most excited about for the future?

There is a lot to be excited about over the next 5 years  – the possibility of hosting an All Star Game at Bankers Life Fieldhouse is pretty high on the list! [Editor’s note: Say whaaat?! Super cool.]

If you won the lottery, what would you do with your winnings?

If I won the lottery I would put half of the winnings in savings, and utilize the other half to: tithe, travel, donate to local organizations of interest and pay off student loans.

Would you rather visit the world 100 years in the past or 100 in the future and why?

I would rather visit the world 100 years in the past –  based on history, you would already know what to expect. Whereas, going into the future, you don’t know what’s to come.

What is your favorite family tradition?

My favorite family tradition is putting up the Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving.
