When did you move to Oklahoma City? Where did you come from?
We relocated from Cincinnati because my family was in a position to make a change. My daughter was finishing college and my wife wanted to step back from her work role. I was offered a position in the sort of work (commercial mortgage investment) which I had done for many years and greatly enjoyed.
What has been the biggest surprise about OKC to you?
The people are very friendly here and willing to go out of their way for others
What is your favorite thing about living in OKC?
In OKC, I enjoy exploring new restaurants in and around town.
What would you say to someone thinking about moving to OKC?
This is a town where opportunities abound—restaurants, professional services businesses and where great ideas have hit other cities but are not yet here.
