  • Coolest personal accomplishment: Running the New York City Marathon without training. Shortly after moving to the city, an opportunity to run presented itself at the last minute.  I didn’t know how it would go, and it turned out to be one of the best days of my life!
  • Superpower: Finding a way around “NO!” Everything is possible with the right perspective, investment in relationships, and a little bit of hard work.
  • Professional accomplishment: Having the privilege to be involved with, or lead, the building and transformation of two large global security programs. I’m looking forward to what we can build together in the future!
