"Fortunately, I married the most stunning, intelligent, compassionate (and patient) woman on the planet. I have a love-hate relationship with our Italian Greyhound – Mossy, who is currently our only child. I like to hustle. When I’m not chasing the next deal at work, I dabble in stock market investments, talk too much about politics, and watch TV shows about politics. And then there’s sport, plenty of sport. I’m always up for a coffee, but only if it’s passionately brewed. You + me and coffee can change the world. Let’s do it."
