What’s your favorite piece of public art and where in the world is it?

The ceiling of the Sistine Chapel located in the Vatican.

One of our area’s treasures is the outdoors. What’s your favorite thing to do here?

I like to enjoy the outdoors through Alpine skiing, golfing, boating and recreational flying.

Name one local business leader you most admire, and tell us why?

Bob Miller. I believe actions speak louder than words, and Bob’s actions speak for themselves… He completely and quickly turned Albertsons around. I also appreciate the culture he has created: respect for one another, no arrogance and a helpful attitude.

What is the one thing about the Treasure Valley you would never change?

The people. The people of the Treasure Valley are the friendliest and most generous ever.

Together Treasure Valley gave $50,000 to help fund Caldwell’s Indian Creek Musical Arts Project. Why was this an important project to fund?

Together Treasure Valley’s mission is to help fund a variety of projects that will leave a lasting, meaningful impression on the Treasure Valley. The Indian Creek Musical Art Park is a perfect example of this. The Musical Art Park will bring together beautiful art in a way that is both interactive and educational. All musical instruments will be working art sculptures designed as true percussion instruments which will enhance Indian Creek’s beautiful urban outdoor setting and create a full sensory experience for both children and adults. It is strategically located between two downtown destinations – Indian Creek Park and Indian Creek Plaza – which are designed to encourage social participation for the entire community. We started our business in Caldwell 42 years ago. Recently, we announced the construction of a new distribution center in the City of Caldwell. This is a major part of our business, and we are very pleased to bring it back to the community where it all started. It is truly gratifying to me personally to contribute to the City of Caldwell’s revitalization efforts, both economically and culturally.
