What was your first job, and how did it shape your life?

What keeps you awake at night?

Thoughts and ideas about my business and personal life.

When do you feel most free?

When accompanying a thought-provoking book with a frothy, bitter latte.
What was the last gift you received?
A saxophone.


What is your view on money?

Two cash-flows are better than one. A penny saved is a penny earned.

What is an extraordinary place you have recently traveled to?

Saigon, Vietnam

What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?  

I played 10 years of ice-hockey. And was a Division 1 cross-country runner.
