What was the hardest lesson you've learned so far?
"Hire professionals for home improvement projects. I thought installing a patio in my backyard would be a fun DIY project. That was an expensive and painful lesson. On the upside, I now own a tamper."
What's a fact about yourself that will surprise people?
"I'm a secret slob. I keep my professional life super organized with color-coded calendars and everything, but my room and car are always a mess. I have dry-cleaning from three months ago in my trunk. Is there an app for that?"
"I like to buy the cheapest one-way flight abroad I can find, buy another one-way flight home from somewhere else, and backpack around as many places as time and budget will allow in between the destinations. I've done this on four continents so far."
