If you had not chosen your current profession, what profession would you choose and why?
I would be a biomedical engineer – my paternal grandfather was hugely impactful on me as a kid, but he had a very serious heart condition. As a youngster, I designed an artificial heart, powered by compressed air, in an effort to try to help him. I miss him.
I’ve lived on four continents and visited six. Tough to pick a favorite, but I’d have to say New Caledonia ranks up there.
When I want to relax, I … :
Either read or do woodworking. I read lots of genres but prefer the classics because the authors were craftspeople. I like to make outdoor furniture (more forgiving for my amateur skills), but have also made some practical improvements in the house (Hint to married male woodworkers everywhere: a makeover of your wife’s closet does wonders for your freedom to buy tools.)
“The Count of Monte Cristo,” by Alexandre Dumas. A masterpiece of justice, introspection and redemption.
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” Not just an endorsement of teamwork, but rather a guide for making leadership decisions.
