Person you admire most (outside of the family): My close friend since college, Carolyn, who travels the world extensively for work, has an amazing work ethic, never sleeps, speaks publically in front of hundreds of people (in Russian and German on occasion!) and who always maintains a positive attitude, thinks the best of people, is always there for me and for others, lets the small things go, lives her life vibrantly and with much humor, has the best and most contagious laugh I’ve ever heard, and who faces adversity with grace and patience, even through the most difficult of times.

If you had to choose a different profession, what would it be? An artist. Creativity is always at the forefront of all of my work, and it’s what I enjoy most.
