How I drive performance: Establish clear objectives, reward often, provide continuous feedback.

Something you don't know about me: In my 20s, I used to be a part-time hand and foot model. Due to an unfortunate soccer injury, my career path took a turn and I am where I am today due to my pinky toe.
Words to live by: If you look like your passport picture, you probably need the trip!
Brand I admire: George Foreman’s Lean Mean Fat Reducing Grilling Machine. A silly invention that has sold more than 100 million units in 10 years! Who would have thought an indoor grill was such a home must-have!
