If you were not a lawyer, what career would you have chosen?

If I were not a lawyer, I would have chosen a career in consulting. Much like why I was drawn to law, I enjoy facing complex issues and the dynamic problem-solving approach that such issues demand. I also love working with people so the heavy client-facing aspect of consulting appeals to me.

Would you rather live in the ocean or on the moon?

I would rather live on the moon. I’ve always been fascinated by space and actually wanted to be an astronaut when I was younger.

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” – Wayne Gretzky. It is a classic one but I really believe it to hold true in all aspects of life. You never know what you can achieve if you don’t try, and failure is inevitable in the pursuit of success.
