What’s your favorite activity to do outside of work?

Mostly spend time with my children, but when I have time to myself I play PC games often. I am a huge fan of story driven games, with great atmospheres, like the Dead Space series or Metal Gear Solid.

What’s your favorite movie?

It is certainly difficult to determine a favorite, but any movie that can make me laugh too hard will be on this list. Bubble Boy, The Birdcage, and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy are among my top favorites.

What’s your favorite vacation?

I am actually more of a stay-cation type of person. Instead of taking my family on long beach trips or similar, I prefer to visit various places of interest with a few hours drive, like the Crayola Experience, or Sesame Place in NYC. However, the best vacation I have been on myself was a trip to Egypt, where I was able to explorer the Pyramids, eat dinner in front of the Sphinx, and experience the beautiful Mediterranean Sea.

If you could visit anywhere in the world you’ve never been, where would you go?

I have seen a lot of places throughout my life, lived coast to coast of the United States, and have spent time in nine other countries, but I have always wanted to visit Japan. It has an amazing technologically driven culture that I find fascinating.

What are you working on right now?

My goal here at The Summit Group is to bring a strong Cyber Security and Information Assurance aspect to the organization, by developing in depth risk assessments, security consulting, and Government compliance as core services tied to the organization.
