One word I would use to describe myself:
I love cake! My mother was a great baker and so is my wife. My favorite is chocoloate chip cake made in a bundt pan (great for breakfast). I also love a basic white cake with caramel (penuche) icing.
People would be surprised to know:
I relax easily and am a very laid-back person at home, on weekends and on vacation.
My most influential person:
Even though my dad has been gone since 1983, his example and advice live on. He remains my role model as a husband and father. I also gain leadership and business inspiration from many of my clients, colleagues and business friends.
