What’s one thing you wish the business world would borrow from the acting world?

Equity breaks. (Note: Actors Equity, the professional actors' union, requires a break be taken either every hour or hour and a half.)

What do you consider your personal trademark as a trainer?

Humor. And honesty. Maybe sarcasm. Indecisiveness?

Who are your favorite actors?

Like ever other human on the planet, Meryl Streep comes first. No one lives in the moment like her. 

Jeffrey Wright. He is both smart and  internally messy in the most satisfying way possible.

What is your hidden talent?

Photography. I just picked up the camera again for the first time in decades. I was on the yearbook staff in middle school and took photos of all the sporting events and teams.

You’ve won a vacation of your choosing! Where are you going?

Iceland, to see my friend Lovisa, and meet her husband and kids.
