Favorite musician/band: "You can’t go wrong with Frank Sinatra."

Favorite local restaurant: "It all depends on what I am in the mood for, but here are a couple of my favs: Osteria del Mondo – have the veal tagliatelle; Bacchus- order a sidecar in their bar; Capital Grille – gotta have the pan-fried calamari; and Mason Street Grill – nothing beats a good bone-in ribeye grilled to perfection."
Words to live by: "There is no crying in baseball."
What is your core philosophy for doing business? "We are committed to our client’s bottom line – you have to unequivocally add very transparent value. You also need to stay sharp – anticipate where the industry is going and get there first."
Who is your role model and why? "I’m lucky to have many people in my life who provide positive influence and guidance in different areas. My closest circle includes one of the best people managers I have met in my life, a very successful entrepreneur and a conservative voice of reason – believe me, I need this one."

It could be early in my career getting summoned up to the boss’ office for an ‘atta girl’ and knocking over a full glass of coffee on his desk.
