1. Where are you from originally? — I was born in New York City and raised in a suburb on Long Island until I went off to college.

2. What is your definition of success? — I ask myself that all the time.  I wish I had the grace to know the answer.

3. What is the greatest challenge you have had to overcome in your life thus far? — My dad passed away during my first semester of law school.  But I’m very fortunate that I can continue to draw on the lessons he taught me.  In that sense, I still feel like I can go to him for advice.

4. What is the most important thing you have learned in the last five years? — Being a parent is very hard but very rewarding.

5. What TV show/movie are you ashamed to admit you love? — I once watched Bluey without my son.

6. What’s something that you’ve always wanted to try or learn? — To be fluent in another language.  But it’s been pointed out to me that my English could use some work — so one thing at a time.
