Have you lived outside of Acadiana?  Where?  What makes Acadiana a special place to live? I have. My wife and I lived in Birmingham, Alabama right out of college. Living in Acadiana is special mostly due to its people.

Are you an artist? I was an artist early in life but more appreciative of it now versus active participation.

What mediums are you most drawn to? Pen and ink

Why did you join AcA, and do you recall your first experience with AcA? I joined after attending a concert a couple of years ago featuring a blind pianist from New York named Andrew? Whittaker. I was so taken by the experience and the ambiance of the ACA theater that I decided to join to help support other artist.

What has been your favorite performance or event hosted by AcA? I really enjoyed participating for the first time in Gulf Brew.

What are your favorite aspects of your job and company?  I love the variety of things that we work on and the technology provided to us to do our jobs well. Boyd Gaming has a long history of taking care of its team members and have some that have been with the company for 50 years.

If you could mentor someone who is just starting out in your field, what advice would you give them? I would tell them to join LinkenIn, really get to know the players in whatever industry that you work in and to never burn bridges when changing jobs because a lot of industries my seem expansive, but in reality is can be quite small when looking for a new job.
