What was your very first job?
Ever? It was as a paper delivery boy at age 10. By bike and wagon.

What was the most unique experience you’ve ever had?
I won a no-handed beer chugging contest and beat the guy who showed me how to do it. I also donated bone marrow to a stranger and played 9 holes of golf later that day.

How did you get interested in your chosen field?
Honestly, I looked at a list of starting salaries coming out of college. At the top was engineering and the next was finance. I’m no engineer, so there you go.

What is your favorite interview question to ask?
I like to know what motivates people, and I look for people who have an intrinsic drive to do things well.
