What are you reading now? I'm in a CIO Community of Practice and this month, we are all reading "The Wolf in CIO's Clothing" by Tina Nunno.

Most people don't know that I… am very much an introvert and don't necessarily enjoy being on the stage. It used to be like going to the dentist for me—you have to do it, but it's not all that fun. Many people, including young professionals who I mentor, find that hard to believe since I speak at many conferences, including the Laserfiche Empower worldwide conference, attended by over 3,000 people, and at the Ascend National Convention with several thousand attendees. However, I do enjoy teaching and mentoring others, so the time on stage goes fairly quickly.

In my spare time, I like to… spend time with family. I also like photography and hitting the gym a few times a week to unwind.

Ask me to do anything but… skydiving. I like adventure and exploring new activities, but there's something about jumping out of an airplane at 120 miles per hour that isn't too appealing. I would rather take my motorcycle down the winding roads of Pacific Coast Highway.
