Security Systems News caught up with him to ask him five questions.

Where do you live and why?

I live in Las Vegas. I’m here for the sunshine and for extended family. I like the fact that there’s a lot of natural beauty nearby, like the Grand Canyon.

What do you like to do when you have spare time?

My wife and I have always wanted to sail. We’re taking some classes right now and figuring out how to get involved in it more. We also like to hike. I like to write. I write poetry.

Do you have pets?

We have a Golden Retriever, so we’re not quite empty nesters. [His youngest child is now in college.] The dog thinks she’s a toddler. She likes toys, snacks and playing outside.

What’s the last movie you watched that you enjoyed?

“American Sniper.” It was very powerful. It really put in perspective what some of the men and women in our country are going through.

What’s something your new coworkers might not know about you?

I just celebrated by 32-year wedding anniversary. I married my high school sweetheart, and we’re still going strong.
