Family picture (mother and brother) in front of the Golden Dome (Go Irish!).

The other side of the family! My brother, sister and father before a Johns Hopkins lacrosse game.

Alzheimer’s Association fundraiser. Dancing with the Stars style event. We won Judge’s Choice for best dance!

My happy place. And, hopefully, the location of my future beach bar.

Where's your favorite place in the world?

Baltimore – There are amazing places in this world, and I prefer Baltimore. It is where I grew up; where I was raised by a loving and caring family; met wonderful friends and made amazing memories. Now in my newest chapter, I get to build a world class company in Facet with an incredible team right here in Baltimore

What's the best meal you've ever had?

I am not a foodie by any stretch so I’ll go with my comfort foods. My mother made an incredible lasagna; second to none. We had family dinners every night and Wednesday was Lasagna night! I’ll give my father a close second. He was a master griller and made the best BBQ chicken. But he would always had broccoli as a side. I would devour the chicken and stare at the broccoli for hours.

If you could be an animal, which would you be?

I may be breaking the rules of this Q&A as my selection is extinct, but I would be a Velociraptor. Fast, strategic animals that hunt in teams. In business, I believe in working quickly, iterating, being strategic and collaborating with an amazing team to achieve success.

What are you passionate about?

All things Notre Dame. Saturdays are sacred in my household. Playing sports; mainly of the “beer league” variety these days. Traveling; primarily to warm, sunny places. I have a dream of owning a bar on a beach one day. Giving back in my community through boards, charitable organizations and community service. And, of course, spending time with friends and family.
