-- Before my current life, I spent seven years as a Navy officer. From interviews to cocktail parties to dates, the most common questions I get asked are “why did you go in” and "why did you leave?" I served in the Navy because I felt it was the most meaningful and challenging thing I could do at that stage in my life. I believed in all the slogans, “let the journey begin,” “a global force for good,” “don’t read history, make it” and I will always have the satisfaction of knowing that I served. And the Navy delivered on all its promises (you’ll get more details on that if we go on a date).
I also teach a few classes on investment management.
I like movies about overcoming obstacles (Moneyball, Morning Glory), maturing individuals (Stand By Me, Knocked Up), or that show historical perspective and insight (Munich, Saving Private Ryan, Too Big To Fail).
I find most television incredibly boring with the exception of How I Met Your Mother, The Daily Show, and sometimes Saturday Night Live.
