If you had not chosen your current profession, what profession would you choose and why?
I love the water. If I had my choice, I’d be a captain piloting yachts around the world, or own/operate a small boat marina.
My favorite vacation was my honeymoon in Greece where I got to see the Palace Complex at Knossos (Crete) which I studied in an Art History class 20 years ago, hike the volcanic ridges of Santorini in full view of the most blue water I’ve ever seen, and of course see first-hand the Parthenon in Athens.
When I want to relax, I … :
Go on a walk, hike, or bike ride and watch the sun set.
Favorite Broadway show:
“The Book of Mormon”
Music of the 80’s and 90’s.
I have two I often repeat, “Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.” – Peter Drucker and “Don’t write so that you can be understood, write so that you can’t be misunderstood.” – William Howard Taft
