Q: Why did you join the Chicago Connectory?
A: I joined to connect with the rich community of The Connectory. There are many companies and organizations that utilize the space to connect, collaborate, and co-create. It’s such a rich environment for productivity.
Q: What do you love most about the Chicago Connectory?
A: I love the air of possibility. The space is designed to really bring out positive productivity. Perhaps there’s something in the coffee but whenever I meet anyone there to catch up or focus down on an opportunity, I always feel accomplished and invigorated. The physical space as well as the warm staff make it all possible.
Q: What’s your favorite memory at the Chicago Connectory or favorite event you’ve attended?
A: My favorite memory is the very first Design Sprints with Moonshot session. We weren’t expecting a large audience, but the room was packed! It was tremendously exhilarating and rewarding to connect with the larger Connectory community and create a meaningful program.
Q: When you’re not working, how do you enjoy spending your time?
A: My wife and I have a 3-year-old daughter, so we try to spend as much time with her together. I love music. As a hobbyist DJ, I enjoy discovering new music, so we enjoy listening to music, singing, and dancing (I’ve become quite knowledgeable in children’s songs lately!).
Q: What’s one item you can’t live without?
A: Coffee. At least one cup a day. The day never feels right without it.
Q: If you could choose a superpower, what would it be?
A: My superpower would be able to speak and understand any language. I travel a lot (or used to!) and it would be amazing to communicate with everyone in their natural and native tongue. Imagine all the stories and insights we could share!
