  1. I grew up by the beach. Although I never learned how to surf, I do enjoy swimming and skim boarding.
  2. I LOVE elephants. They became my favorite animal due to my childhood obsession with The Jungle Book and Dumbo.
  3. My childhood nickname was Mowgli from The Jungle Book.
  4. Family, Music and Nature are my spiritual foods.
  5. I appreciate the art of Typography. I am a strong believer that “Fonts Matter.”
  6. I am a fan of Street Art.
  7. The word “Precision” has always been a tongue-twister to me. I always have to think twice before saying it out loud with…precision.
  8. I don’t recall the last time I didn’t order iced coffee at Starbucks.
  9. I am a kid in a candy store when I’m at a plant nursery, especially around succulents!
  10. West Side Story is my all-time favorite musical. I’ve watched the original 1961 movie musical countless times and still enjoy every second of it: the choreography, cinematography, story line, acting, language accents and music composition by Leonard Bernstein. I feel pretty prepared to audition for a role in the next Broadway revival.
