What does style mean to you and how would you define your style?
I define style as a way of being true to oneself. How one carries themselves, interacts with others, the community around them both personally and professionally. For me style is having a high level of integrity along with being intentional about what I say and do. My personal style is neat, well-groomed and professionally dressed. Details are important, a great fit and quality material makes the look complete. My style defines me on so many levels!
Holiday time is all about giving, what are you most excited to give this holiday season?
During the holiday I really enjoy spending time with my wife Cathy, daughter Calyssa, and son George III. As a family we share our blessings by giving back to the community. This year I created the first annual “Toys for Tots Drive” and “Holiday Mixer” for the 100 Blackmen of Stamford. The event is designed to bring our chapter members and supporters together to raise funds for families in need. Philanthropy is very important. Holiday time is also a great time for reflection and planning for the future.
