Where did you grow up?
My father was Air Force Military, so we moved around a lot – seems every 2 years or so we would be stationed at a different base. Things settled down when I was a late teen, and spent the longest time in Montreal, Quebec, which is where I went to university and met my wife—the love of my life.

Favorite book, movie or song?
Favorite song: U2 – Miracle Drug
Favorite movies: “Groundhog Day” and Giuseppe Tornatore’s “Cinema Paradiso

Favorite motivational quote?
If you’re going to do a thing, do it best” …from my father, who taught me that mediocrity should never be my goal, when mowing the lawn, doing dishes, painting a room, cleaning the garage or washing the car. But this lesson especially resonates when raising my children.
