Adversity and misfortune have created some of my best opportunities.

As children, we're all asked the question "What do you want to be when you grow up?" How did you answer?

As a child, I thought I wanted to be a lawyer. Fortunately, I grew up some.

What have been the most defining moments along your career path?

Misfortune. It's been said that when things are going you're way, you're never as good as you think you are, but when things aren't, you're never as bad as you think you are. Without question, adversity and misfortune have created some of my best opportunities.

How did you get your big breaks?

Networking. You never know what can come from people for whom you did good work, helped out, and stayed in touch with.

What was the best advice you received when you were first starting out in your career?

Your reputation is all you have. You spend your entire life building it, but one wrong move can destroy it.

What have you learned from your experience?

Sometimes it's best to jump without a net.

What most excites you about your job right now?

Almost everything about being a student is exciting right now...

What would you like to have achieved by the last day of your career?

Happiness
