In another life, I’m pretty sure I was a game show host.

If I won the lottery tomorrow I would create an innovation fund for young entrepreneurs and go back to work the next day.

The best piece of advice I ever received was from my grandfather. He told me the only thing you ever really have is your reputation.

If I weren’t so damn good at my job, I’d probably start another company that would give me a job I was better at.

The most inspiring part of my job is leading a team of hyper-talented individuals to actually create and build something from an idea. Or to deliver a software solution that actually improves people’s lives.

The most important thing I learned before high school was that everyone has good ideas if you just listen long enough.

If I were a superhero, my superpower would be Slow Fix It Man – I would have the powers to repair any vehicle or household item. Except it would take me one hundred times longer than it would take for a professional.

When I was 5 my mother suggested I should be an attorney because I argued about everything. I said, “No I don’t!” But the real answer is when I was 5, I was pretty sure I’d be a psychologist when I grew up.
