What was your proudest moment?
Pretty much anything my kids do.
What is your alma mater?
JD, Northwestern University School of Law; BA, University of Southern California
What is your next project?
My oldest child will be a senior in high school starting this fall. The whole “college thing” is definitely the next big personal project. On the work front, I am probably most excited about working on a large petrochemical facility development in the Midwest – very complicated and interesting.
Who is your hero?
I’m going to cheat and give you two: My late grandfather and Ronald Reagan
What do you like best about Los Angeles?
Assuming I can get there (you know my least favorite thing about LA – traffic), I love the diversity. I love how you have so many options to do so many different things with so many different types of people. I love being at the beach, I love going to Dodgers games, I love our music choices, I love our food options, I love our hills, and I love how I can be in the city during the day and capture a more rural life in Calabasas at home that night.
