What inspires me to do what I do
Doing something that is really challenging and enjoyable, while working with great people and for an organization that I respect and admire.
Fortunately, none since I was twelve.
Running up steep hills, international travel and wine.
If I won a million dollars
I would take my family on a vacation that we would remember for a lifetime. I also always wanted to be able to read an article about a family that unexpectedly encountered a tragic event, and anonymously send them money to assist in their time of need.
Something someone would be surprised to know about me
I took a 10-day bicycle trip through India.
Thing that really baffles me
When people that qualify for the carpool lane stay stuck in traffic with the rest of us poor souls!
A person I’d love to meet
Mediterranean and Indian food.
Slogans for life
Be appreciative of something, no matter how little, each day.
