 Now, time for a few fun questions:

Morning or night person?: Morning

Best piece of advice ever given: Be respectful of people as you never know what kind of personal battle they are currently going through.

 Perfect weekend?:  Spending time with my family. I am married with two small children 6, and 8, and time with them is very important.

 If you could have lunch with one person, who would it be and what would you order?: Jimmy Fallon. I like people that have a positive outlook on life and use that attitude to do good in the world. Ideally the dinner would take place in a pub with a great selection of pub food.
