What is your favorite quote?
"You can't just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they'll want something new." - Steve Jobs
What do you do for fun?
I enjoy the unconventional at home workout routines and reading when I feel like I need to learn a new topic and my brain is feeling a bit sluggish. The books I enjoy the most are personal finance books and self help books. Books that take you outside of the box or that have a well placed argument that I have yet to figure out about life. The book has to have some sort of meaningful content otherwise I won't have the motivation to pick it up.
If you could have any superpower what would it be?
That's a good question, the most common response to this answer would probably be to fly. But If you have ever seen Limitless the movie, I would like to think 10x faster and see ahead to learn anything and do anything. Actually, I would like to live forever. You know have the time to grow. You really can't accomplish everything you want in the average lifespan of 80 years.
How would you describe your perfect day?
It's a feeling more than anything. I can picture waking up having accomplished all of my responsibilities the day before. I wake up early in a fresh white comfortable sheets of my bed with the sun shining in soft blue clear skies with a cold touch of Fall. Fall has to be my favorite time. It's such a finite time between spring and winter. Cool and Warm. A paradox statement I know but I can see the soft yellow, orange and blue and clear white clouds scattered across the sky. I can picture it so clearly in my mind. It's the feeling of.. know your going to ... just have a great day no matter what you do.
Who are you?
I am not entirely sure yet. When I figure out my true bigger picture self and where I fit into society. I will let you know. Even better you might witness it before I realize it.
What gets you out of bed every morning?
Food. I'm kidding. I think it is an unconscious state about where I am and where I need to be. It's just the trained fact of moving. Having to move forward and realizing when you wake up there is work to do. Bigger Picture work with surprises if I deserve to have good surprise or taste of serendipitous life that day.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Who is your hero?
That is a tricky question because I have multiple heros. I have my old bosses, my uncle and my famous idals. As much as I love all of them, I would probably like to say that the person with the most consistent influence on my life would have to be my father. The older you grow, the more you start to understand the people that raised you and the choices they had to make with all of the pressures, influences and environment that shaped them. You become more empathetic to their circumstances. I mean we are only human and who's to say that if you were in their shoes you would have a made a different decision.
