What gets you excited to come to work each day?

The variety. No two days are alike. Actually, no two hours are even remotely related.

Where do you find your inspiration?

I find my inspiration in those who are truly passionate about an issue, in people who have overcome significant obstacles with what seems like superhuman strength, in movies, in books. Everywhere.

What’s the weirdest thing on your desk, and why do you have it?

A Magic 8 Ball, to remind me I can always turn to it for the big decisions.
