Where’s your favorite place to vacation? Why?
My favorite destination visited thus far was Dubai. They have the most extravagant accommodations, and it was neat to experience the observance of Ramadan.
What do you do for fun?
I thoroughly enjoy walking the aisles of Homegoods, TJ Maxx and Marshalls. I realize this is a quirk. I’m okay with it.
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A dentist. Other members of my family work in dentistry and they would cross out their names on business cards and put mine in place as a source of inspiration. I made a hard left at some point to land in CRE.
Which historical figure would you most like to meet?
My favorite astronaut, Michael Collins. Many are unaware of his part in Apollo 11. I always imagined he'd never have to pay for his bar bills since he'd bet other patrons he was the first to land on the moon since he was lesser known than his crewmates. Despite his remarkable accomplishments, he always managed to fly under the radar and was relatively unknown. He unfortunately passed in 2021.
What’s your idea of a perfect day?
A day spent with my family and dogs making memories is my perception of perfection.
