When you were a kid, what career did you want to have?

I wanted to be a pilot, a ship captain, an explorer, a long-haul truck driver, a meteorologist, an anthropologist, and many more things. I was frustrated I was only supposed to pick one.

What do you do at Career Cruising?

I build partnerships with agencies that will bring our inspiring ccEngage resources to benefit entire communities, regions and countries.

What are you extremely passionate about? Why?

I love to travel. I still leave nose prints on plane windows. I love to play with original ideas with people who are passionate about making a difference.

What’s your favourite book? Why?

Any book by Wilbur Smith or James Michener. I've read them all. I love the way they both ground amazingly real characters and spell-binding plots in true historical perspective.
