Cats or dogs?

Definitely dogs.
I rescue animals so I have a menagerie with 4 horses, 3 big dogs and 2 cats.
Dogs are the best pals to have on a hike.

Tea or coffee?

Coffee - usually latte.

Red or white?


3 interesting facts about you?

Grew up the oldest with 4 brothers and we all raced skiing.
I avoid technology and keep my phones forever.
A little bit of an adrenaline junkie as I challenge myself to do what I am afraid of - like: getting my scuba certification; I piloted a plane; and jumped off Victoria Falls (never again!).

How's WFH?

I miss being in NYC especially around this time of the year.
I find I work more hours at home versus going into the office.


So sad that so many people have needlessly died.

What do you enjoy most about your work?

I love the human story behind every career and this business has allowed me to meet some pretty fantastic people like Eileen Murray ex-CEO of Bridgewater who I introduced to Warburg Pincus and she recently accepted an Executive in Residence position. She has had remarkable career and she is a fantastic person.
