Q&A

  • What’s your favorite quote?
    “I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member.” - Groucho Marx

  • What’s the best piece of advice you ever received?
    Prior to entering law school, a former acquaintance from the business world once told me “Be a dealmaker, not a dealbreaker”. Simple, yet practical and effective, advice that has served me well over the years.

  • What was the first album you ever bought?
    KISS Alive, a double album with full gatefold cover back when vinyl was neither hip nor of great quality, but at least better than 8-track tapes (and the younger folks will need to Google that reference).
