If you could choose one theme song to play whenever you entered a room, what would it be?
Sweet Dreams by Eurythmics
How did you end up in your industry?
By accident. I got into tech because I picked a job that I thought would be easy when I joined the Air Force. It just happened to be Computer, Networking, Cryptographic, and Switching Systems. I had the ability to learn everything from networking to programming and loved it.

Running the trails of the Wissahickon
Best kept secret of your city?
