Where are you originally from?
I’m from New York. I grew up about 30 miles north of NYC and went to college in Binghamton, NY.
What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time?
When it gets warm, I love to be outdoors. I will jog, take walks or ride my bike. I also just joined a local kayaking club! In the winter I pretty much go into hibernation mode and stick to TV and books.
If you had your own talk show, who would be the first three guests you’d like to interview?
My first talk show guests would be Tom Hanks (I consider him to be America’s sweetheart), Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Aniston. They are all actors that I love.
Do you have a secret talent or a hobby?
One of my majors in college was studio art, so I have a propensity for painting and drawing. However, these days, I’m not often motivated to just sit down and make something unless it’s going to be a gift for someone.
What is your professional highlight of the year?
I just completed my M.S. in Integrated Marketing Communications from West Virginia University! It was 100% online so I worked full-time while I studied. It was a TON to balance each day for the past two years, but I’m glad I did it.
What do you find most interesting about cybersecurity or technology?
I came to LaunchTech from a marketing agency that didn’t specialize in any particular industry; my clients ranged from street sweepers to yacht brokers. What I have come to love about cybersecurity is how relevant it is to absolutely everyone, from private citizens to corporations and the government.
