Check out our interview with Noah below!
How do you prefer to start your workday?
With two cups of strong coffee and 30 minutes dedicated to getting myself down to Inbox Zero.
What could you give a 30-minute presentation about with no advance preparation?
One of my responsibilities at Capital Homes is to oversee the process through which we launch the construction of our homes. This is a multifaceted process that requires interaction between at least a dozen different parties. It’s complicated, dynamic, and a lot of fun to manage.
What’s a trip that has changed you, and why?
After college, I used my savings to travel the world with my best friend from childhood. We visited 19 countries over the course of 7 months and it completely opened my eyes and mind to recognize that there was much more than what I’d experienced here in the USA. This travel and cultural education have provided a foundation for my worldview and also inspired me to live abroad for nearly 4 years.
I’m the younger of two brothers and I definitely think it made me more outgoing, loud, and attention-seeking.If you could only eat one item for every meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Vietnamese vermicelli noodle bowls. They are filling, flavorful, and healthy!
What book are you reading now?
Give and Take by Adam Grant and re-reading The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck.
What is one of your favorite things about being a member of the root coworking?
The root is a warm, welcoming, and vibrant place to work that has welcomed me and our company from day one. The staff is always friendly and helpful, and the upbeat energy of the space is contagious.
