What was your favorite food as a kid?
If you couldn’t be a lawyer, what would you be?
Pro soccer player, but that would also mean that I would need speed and agility.

I was the commercial manager for a food-processing company early in my career and developed an appreciation and understanding for the industry that continues today.

"Lean on Me" by Bill Withers, because it speaks to having a support network and being there for others when they need a friend.
What is your favorite quote?
I could tell you, but I don’t think it is fit for public print. It was what Miles told Joel in [the movie] “Risky business” and speaks to taking a risk and seeking opportunity.

Greece because I love Mediterranean food.
