If you could tell the story of any company or organization, which would you choose?
I would choose Raytheon - the historical conflicts their products have been involved in are incredible. It'd also be fascinating to spend a day in their R&D labs to see what's being created for the future. Most often futurists shy away from discussing military technology, but as a country it's where we dedicate one of our highest annual levels of investment, so I know they're creating a lot of interesting stuff that will eventually get boiled down into consumer offshoots. I believe it's where the microwave was first invented.
Hobbies outside of work?
I dedicate a lot of my time outside of the office to exercise and fitness. Whether it's yoga or running, I like to be active and I like to create new challenges for myself.
Favorite writer or journalist?
I'm a big fan of Kurt Vonnegut. Read Slaughterhouse-Five while I was in high school and have been hooked ever since.
If you could take the place of one historical figure, who would it be?
Definitely JFK during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
What about if you could have one superpower?
I'll go the route of traditional communication professionals and say the ability to read people's minds, specifically clients'.
What’s your Pandora “paperwork” station?
A steady dose of Metallica, Pearl Jam, and Stone Temple Pilots.
