What’s your favorite vacation spot?
Without a doubt – New Orleans – amazing food, music, and art scene. The museums and people watching are also top notch.
What was your very first job?
My very first job was as a day camp counselor in my hometown in the Northern suburbs of Chicago. Getting paid to sit out in the sun and play dodgeball was a wonderful way to spend the summer.
What’s your favorite book?
The Secret History by Donna Tart. It has everything – a unique murder mystery, deeply flawed characters, and a twist ending. I couldn’t put it down.
“Your knowledge and guidance on several hot button topics was spot on. We appreciate your insight and I wanted to reaffirm what a pleasure it was to work with you."
