Q. What is your motto or maxim?

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. My mother's Greek spinach rolls (though we're not Greek).

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. If people who know me say I'm a kind and honest person and have integrity, that I would consider a great achievement.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?
