If I could do anything, I would… pretty much do what I am doing, meaning work with students, but I would find a way to spend more time with my wife.

Greatest role model: Anyone who puts the greater good before self.

Reach out to me about… most anything related to student innovation and entrepreneurship. If I don’t know how to help you, I likely know someone who does.
