If you had not chosen your current profession, what profession would you choose and why?
I imagine it would have been in some form of a service industry or client-service focused role. I thrive on social interaction and engaging with customers and/or clients.
I recently traveled to Maranello, Italy to visit the Ferrari management team and production facilities, which in my view might be as close to a car guy’s “Mecca” as exists.
When I want to relax, I …:
Spend time with my three children Alaina (7), Annie (5) and James (1).
I enjoy books/movies based on true stories or inspired by true events. Movies that come to mind are “Cinderella Man,” “The Big Short,” “Rudy,” and “Charlie Wilson’s War,” among many others.
