I was recently notified that I was selected to be part of the Class of 2015 Dayton's 40 Under Forty Award. What an honor it has been, and I am thankful for those who nominated me and also to those who narrowed down the winners.
A special thanks goes to James Mahan, the photographer who passed shortly after completing this photo shoot. What a talented man; gone too soon. It is appropriate that he took this picture of me holding the hourglass, which represents the fact that we all have a limited amount of time here, and we don't know how much we have left. So we must develop ourselves into the best version that we can possibly be, and live this gift that we have been given!
