What are you most passionate about professionally?
Creating environments which can truly make a difference in the lives of humans and help everyone see the positive side of living and aging.
What was your first job?
Detasselling corn in order to produce hybrid seed corn. It was a dirty and hot job. It really helped formulate my concept of what work really is.
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
An architect. This is still what I want to be!
If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet?
Thomas Jefferson. He was such a brilliant, but flawed, individual. I would enjoy exploring how his complex mind worked in person rather than simply in history books.
