What is your favourite inspirational quote?

"If you haven't found something strange during the day, it hasn't been much of a day" - John Archibald Wheeler

What is a little known fact about you?

This was recently pointed out to me: on the day that I was born in 1995, American Airlines Flight 965, a Boeing 757, crashed into a mountain in Buga, Colombia, killing 159.

Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader?

I try to objectively evaluate my work. For example, I always analyze failure but never justify failure.
