What’s something intriguing that most people wouldn’t know about you?
I was the director of a Jewish Book sale during college which grossed $1.2 Million. There were over 135 student employees assisting in the month-long sale that funded student activities for the University. An immense amount of planning and determination went into accomplishing such a large feat. Work began the prior summer and finished with the clean-up the following April.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
Take things slower and enjoy the good times, because life moves fast and time is the most valuable thing you are given.
What movie left a lasting impression on you?
The movie that left a lasting impression on me was called ‘Big Fish’ from 2003. It’s a feel-good fantasy film of a son returning to see his dying father amidst a strained relationship. The son had always felt the father made up his stories since they were so ‘out-there,’ but he begins to realize that they may not have been so untrue after all, and his father was more amazing than he thought. I was very close with my own father, who passed away right when I finished college. This was a phenomenal movie to me.
