LAST SONG/ARTIST YOU LISTENED TO WAS?

I’M LISTENING TO A PANDORA CHANNEL THAT IS PLAYING SANTANA’S SIDEWAY.

YOUR FAVORITE PODCASTS/BOOKS?

I DON’T HAVE A FAVORITE BOOK. IN THE PAST YEAR, I’VE READ A COUPLE BOOKS ABOUT HISTORY INCLUDING GRANT, BY CHERNOW AND IN THE HEART OF THE SEA, BY PHILBRICK. I RECOMMEND BOTH.

IF YOU COULD BE ANYWHERE OTHER THAN HERE, RIGHT THIS MINUTE, WHERE WOULD YOU BE?

IN THE LOCAL PARKS – ENJOYING FRESH AIR.

WHAT ARE SOME CAUSES YOU CARE ABOUT?

LIGHT POLLUTION, WHICH SEEMS LIKE A MINOR ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUE, BUT IT’S INCREASING AND I DON’T THINK WE FULLY UNDERSTAND THE CONSEQUENCES OF THIS YET.

WHAT IS SOMETHING PEOPLE IN MARKET RESEARCH HAVE TO DEAL WITH THAT YOU WANT TO FIX?

SPOOFING FROM COUNTRIES GETTING PAST US IP CHECKS.

WHAT'S THE MOST INSPIRING PART OF YOUR JOB?

THE INCREMENTAL WAYS THE INDUSTRY EVOLVES THROUGH METHODOLOGY AND CREATIVITY.

IF I COULD INVENT A HOLIDAY, IT WOULD DEFINITELY INVOLVE...

GETTING OUTSIDE TO ENJOY NATURE, MUSIC AND FOOD.

IF I WERE A SUPERHERO, MY SUPERPOWER WOULD BE...

TIME TRAVEL.

DO YOU HAVE A PET? WHAT IS THEIR NAME?

MY DOG IS A BLACK LAB NAMED BUDDY. I HAVE A MALE CAT NAMED ZEBRA FOR HIS VARIEGATED COAT AND HIS OLDER SISTER IS NAMED LEELA AFTER THE FUTURAMA CHARACTER.  SHE IS A CALICO WITH A SPOT IN THE MIDDLE OF HER FACE.

FINISH THIS SENTENCE. ON SUNDAY MORNINGS, YOU CAN USUALLY FIND ME...

WALKING BUDDY IN THE PARK.
