What is one of your favorite books and why?
The "Rich Dad" series from Robert Kyosaki, I was raised on these books and it transformed my childhood into a think tank incubation period.
Second favorite is "How to Win Friends and Influence People" by Dale Carnegie.
Favorite movie and why?
I really do not invest a lot of time into movies, however I would have to say Gladiator. Because one had it all, lost it all, and had the fire to fight for it back.
And lastly, what is one of your favorite things about being a member of the root coworking?
Most places it is easy, and arrogant, to see things how I would run them instead of how they are being ran. However, with the root, I would really not change a thing. I am impressed with the emphasis of culture, environment, and "vibe".
