Where have you traveled and where would you still like to go?
Some of my favorite places I’ve been to are Croatia, England, Italy, Kenya, and Spain. Going on Safari in Kenya was a life-changing experience, and a trip I hope to repeat someday.
What are your favorite books/movies?
Books: The Last Lecture: Randy Pausch, The Forgotten Highlander: Alistair Urquhart, and Meditations: Marcus Aurelius. Movies: Tough to narrow it down to only three but Heat, Good Will Hunting and Saving Private Ryan are a few of my all time favorites.
What’s the most non-traditional job you’ve ever had?
During middle school, I spent one summer working at Saratoga Race Course (Upstate New York) selling programs intended for handicapping thoroughbred races. I learned some valuable sales lessons, met more than a few interesting characters from the horse racing community and won my first bet!
