The first 60 minutes of your morning: Getting my kids up, dressed, fed and to school on time!

Your typical sleep routine: As soon as I get my kids to bed, I try to read a book but typically only make it 15 minutes or so and I’m out! Wake up at 5:30 a.m. every day.

The first job you ever had and what it taught you: Pumped gas at Chevron. Taught me what I didn’t want to do with my life.

Advice you would give your younger self: Talk less and say more.

Most-used app:

Recently downloaded app: The New York Times and United.

The best account to follow on social media: I like @TedTalks on Twitter.

One skill you have that others would be surprised to learn: I love to cook!

TV show you are watching: If I have the time I’ll watch “Madam Secretary” with my wife.

The best piece of advice you’ve ever received: What will sustain long after your days are done won’t be your accolades but the friendships you nurtured. So spread kindness, as it is the glue which binds all of us.
