Briefly describe the path that brought you here (to RxGenomix).
I have had the privilege watching RxGenomix from the beginning and how it has grown. I saw how invested Dr. Tice was and how he was building the company the right way. I have so much respect for Dr. Tice and what he was building, so I jumped at the opportunity. It really was the right time, and I could not be happier with my decision.
What is the one thing you most hope to accomplish with RxGenomix in the next five years?
Help RxGenomix become the industry leader in the PGx space. Along with that it will allow us to help a lot of people get on the right medicines, at the right time. Ultimately that is what we are all working for - to make sure we create the best outcomes for as many people as possible.
What’s your personal business philosophy?
I have always been a servant leader. I believe if I help enough people get what they want, I will ultimately get what I want. Also treat people the way you want to be treated. I have always prided myself in my business integrity and doing what is right.
What is the one thing you can’t live without?
Without a doubt it would be my family. My wife and I will be empty nesters in the fall, so we are trying to squeeze in as much family time as possible.
You have two weeks off. Where would you go?
I have been blessed to travel and see different places, but the one place that I enjoyed the most was Turks and Caicos. It is hard to describe how pretty the water is. Two weeks in Turks and Caicos with the family would be hard to top.
What is your spirit animal?
My cat Thompson. We rescued him when he was barely a week old, and he is the best. Thompson just lives his best life every day. That is something I try to do as well.
Who should play you in the movie about your life? (at your current age)
As I age I am becoming more and more follicle challenged. I would say Chris O’Donnell. He has much better hair than I do but if you squint at me in the right light, we have a vague resemblance.
