Why did you want to serve on our board?
My mother was a children’s librarian. Growing up, I spent many wonderful hours in the stacks!

What early life lesson do you still live by today?
First you work, then you play, then you put your toys away.

If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
A murder trial in the Old Bailey because I’ve read so many mysteries that are set there. Rumpole, etc.

What would surprise people to know about you?
I was a Red Sox fan even growing up in Kansas because my grandfather’s best friend was Lore “King” Bader, who was once Babe Ruth’s roommate when he played for the Red Sox. Lore still had his Sox hat and would play catch with me using his old glove. He would tell me stories of “back in the day.” To a young boy who lived and breathed baseball, he was awesome. When I went to college in Boston, the first place I went was Fenway Park. For my dad’s 75th birthday, I got two tickets right behind the 3rd base dugout and I pointed to the mound and said, “That’s where Lore pitched.”

What is your all-time favorite book?
That is a very difficult question because I have enjoyed so many. The Killer Angels, by Michael Shaara, was very powerful. I have read it several times and took one of my daughters with me several years ago to Gettysburg to tour the battlefield on a Memorial Day weekend. It was profoundly moving.
