In his own words
What is the most interesting or memorable project you've been a part of?
Two projects in particular stick out in my mind. One was developing our Perception Analyzer system into a solution for instant scoring and judging of sporting events and other televised competitions. The other was using our Perception Analyzer system to interact with the audience during a fascinating panel discussion about the current state, and future trends, of the media (it was a lot more interesting than it sounds!).
What is one thing people don't generally know about you?
Well, once when I was really, really...no, wait...I'm not telling you that one!
Where in the world do you most want to visit?
The list is long, but the South of France is next.
What's the strangest thing on your desk?
A golden-headed ceramic rooster. It's a long story and I can't share with you the creative nickname my colleagues have given to it.
What's the best hotel amenity you've ever received?
These days I'm excited just to get a free bottle of water.
What is your favorite / least favorite:
Word: mellifluous / spendy
Smell: coffee / dirty diapers

What's your idea of a perfect Saturday morning?
Strong coffee, a really good bagel with cream cheese, and a long hike.
What food could you not live without?
What's your favorite drink?
Coffee or bourbon (depending on if I need to perk up or chill out).
Describe the perfect sandwich.
Philly cheesesteak from Pat's.
In your next life you'd like to be?
...given the chance to enjoy this one again.
