Where do you find inspiration?
In a book or podcast accounting the life of an inventor, athlete or entrepreneur who was expectational at their craft. I find great inspiration in learning about the unique challenges these individuals overcame and the personal qualities and habits that allowed them to excel beyond their peers.
How do you spend your weekends?
My home recently reached a 100 year milestone. When I'm not spending time with family or on my bike you can find me repairing, wrecking or renovating something around the house.
What’s your favourite mode of transportation?
My Bike. I can plan my time better when I'm not worried about delays or traffic.
