Person you admire most (outside of family): I don’t know if I admire him most, but Joseph Lieberman did a pretty courageous thing when he ran as an independent in his senate race. He stuck to his principles (right or wrong) and bucked his party to stand for what he believes in.

Keys to success: Asking questions and not being afraid to take strategic chances

If you had to choose another vocation what would it be? I’d love to be a chef. Cooking is such a creative endeavor and food brings so much pleasure to people.
