1. How do you spend your free time?

I love to golf and to cook, so I spend most of my free time playing golf or cooking elaborate meals with friends. I also love to get out sailing and hiking as much as I can in the summertime and to curl up with a good book when it's not so nice outside.

2. If you could meet any person, living or dead, who would it be and why?

Issac Asimov. His books are so original and creative; I'd be fascinated to meet the person who thought up the crazy stories that he's come up with.

3. What skill do you wish you had?

I wish I was fluent in another language. I am always so envious of people who have been exposed to many different languages because I find languages so difficult to pick up. Some golf skills would be nice too!

4. How would you like to be remembered?

As someone who worked hard for what they had in life, was dedicated and motivated but also generous and caring.

5. If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to?

Ancient Greece. The Greeks excelled in mathematics and in astronomy, both of which are fields I find fascinating. Their mythology was also very interesting, especially in how it reflected the values and culture of the times.
