1. What is your favorite sporting event?
The first question is by far the easiest one to answer! I love going to the USC football games, I have been to over 50 games since my first game in freshman year in 2004. I have even been to away games as far as Boston (vs Boston College) and New York (vs Syracuse). I love to tailgate on campus and cheer for the Trojans with my friends! 🙂
2. Best restaurant for a quick lunch near the office?
There are so many great lunch options near the office including the eateries inside the Grand Central Market – I love G&B Coffee for caffeinated drinks and Wexler’s Deli for bagels. But I really love going to Rice Bar to grab their Filipino Pork Longganisa dish that Charles creates from scratch! This was definitely a hard question to answer because I love to eat!
3. What class in college/graduate school made the most impact on you?
Even though I liked creating projects (like speakers) with resistors and capacitors during my undergrad electrical engineering classes, I loved my intro to theology class in grad school that taught me to have a very open-minded view on all religions.
4. What do you consider to be the biggest development in your field?
I consider making successful AI implementation in automation of legal document drafting (among other things in law) as the biggest development in my field.
5. How do you unwind?
I love to go out with my wife and friends to enjoy craft beers. When I am on my own, I try to read something educational or study… however, I often end up spiraling into the never-ending tunnel of YouTube videos about travel, food and unboxing shoes/tech.
