How do you normally start your day?

I get up early and make coffee and watch about a half hour of news recorded from the night before. Then I make breakfast for my wife and I and drive us both to work.

What adjective best describes you?

Always curious

What are you reading at the moment?

Telegraph Avenue by Michael Chabon. (The hospital I was born in is on that street).

In two sentences or less, can you tell readers something unique about your line of work?

I wouldn’t say it’s unique, but selling books around the world allows me to be exposed to other cultures, ways of thinking and doing business. After all, the book world covers the whole world.

If I weren’t the VP of sales I’d be….

Still selling books somehow, somewhere.

Not many people know this, but I’m good at…

Cooking. I started off my work life as a seafood chef.

What’s the question (and answer to the question) no one has ever asked you but you wish they would?

Q: Would you like my ticket-for-two to London?

A: Yes.
