I'm not loud. But I wouldn't call myself quiet. I have opinions, but I don't jump to conclusions. I like to hear what everyone has to say. // If I make a mistake,* it could cost millions. // Last weekend, a friend of mine called on Saturday and said, "We're out in L.A., and it's 80 degrees." So I booked a flight and headed there for dinner and flew back Sunday. If someone is going to knock my socks off, he has to be fun like that—be able to go with the flow and not be too rigid. // Climbing Kilimanjaro** was a life-changing experience for me, because I was traveling on my own. // After you've been working for a while, people want you to sit on charity boards, but I find it much more rewarding to work with someone who needs help. I've had great mentors in my life, and being a mentor for high-school students is something I feel strongly about.
