What is your favorite book and why?
Macbeth (Shakespeare) is my favorite book. I had a great English teacher in high school, and I clearly remember the lightbulb going on in my head as he was teaching about how relevant it was to the current day. How the fact that hundreds of years had passed, but the human condition was still so similar.
What is the best advice you have ever been given?
He who does not think first, afterwards sighs…and measure twice, cut once! A little advice from my dad about thinking first to avoid mistakes in life…best advice ever.
