- What book other than the Bible impacted you the most?
That’s easy! The Brothers Karamazov. My mother named me after the middle brother, Ivan.
- Where would you go on your ultimate vacation?
Hawaii. With AREAA friends. For the Global Summit!
- Who’s your favorite rock band?
U2. I grew up with them, saw them live in concert twice during high school and to this day I still love them. My other favorite band is The Descendents, a local Los Angeles punk rock band from the 80s.
- Tell us something that no one would ever guess about you.
After work hours, at home, I want people to leave me alone. For some reason people think I’m just as talkative and sociable at home as I am during work hours. For anyone that knows me well, I’m dead silent after work hours. Outside my family, people think my dead silence is way too awkward.
