Where do you work?
The Providence VA Medical Center, where I am the public affairs officer, responsible for media relations, internal and external communications, and community relations. As a 30-year Veteran of the National Guard with two tours in Iraq, I’m not only the spokesman, I also choose VA for my health care.
Why did you decide to go into the PR/Communications field?
I love to write and I hate being bored.
What’s the best career advice you’ve ever received?
If you want people to do something, make it easy. – Richard Thaler
What is your favorite activity outside of work?
Reading and spending time with my family.
If money was no object and you didn’t have to work, what would you be doing?
I’d probably start a virtual marketing communications firm, and only take on the accounts I found most interesting.
