How did you get started in your career?
I joined RJR, which later became Encorus, in December of 2009 shortly after I graduated college.

What is the most valuable career lesson you have learned so far?
Never stop learning.
What is your favorite way to spend a day off?
I enjoy spending time outside hiking, snowboarding, or building things.

I’d rather go to a deserted island with a spoon, a fork, and a knife.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
It seems like flying fast would be useful and fun.
