Why are you passionate about what you do at CSI?
I have family and friends who have been impacted by the systems within which we work (public health and criminal justice). And I enjoy the opportunity to do work that makes a positive difference. CSI isn’t just another business looking to make profit…I think we do this work because we’re passionate about it.
What inspires you?
My family. I aspire to be a good role model for my children and partner. Not that I want them to follow in my footsteps, but I hope that they see Dad as a respectful, compassionate person who wants to help others.
If you could offer advice to a younger version of yourself, what would you say?
Take care of your body…it’s the only one you have and any abuse you expose it to will be felt later in life.
