Fun Facts

On the Bookshelf: “My favorite book is ‘Outliers’ by Malcolm Gladwell, an author I truly respect for his ability to look at things both differently and more clearly. I question a lot of conventional wisdom our world embraces … I challenge myself and my team to question our processes, goals, objectives and everything else with the goal of making things better.”
