If you could visit any place in the world, where would you choose to go and why?
I have lived in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, and I have traveled extensively. Every place has brought me new memories and new friends. My favorite place is therefore somewhere new no matter how close or how far!
What is your favorite book, or genre of books?
Siddhartha by Herman Hesse. I am currently reading Autobiography of a Yogi, which apparently Jobs read every year. It was recommended by a friend. I guess the genre is spiritual awareness.
Are you a morning or night person?
I started as a night person having been an investment banker early in my career. Later my kids made me a morning person!
What is your favorite memory from your time at Stern?
My investment philosophies class which was moderated by Professor Aswath Damodaran and has guests like Michael Price and Leon Cooperman.
Why do you choose to stay engaged with Stern as an alumnus?
My Stern experience has been pivotal in my career and life. It has created a foundational base for my professional knowledge and is an important part of my personal network. It keeps giving and my involvement is a way for me to give back to the larger Stern community.
What quote most inspires you?
“If you want to be happy. Be.”
