4. Current obsession:
A giant cup of dark coffee first thing in the morning as I check email and our e-commerce sites. I’m also obsessed with listening to music by way of Pandora. That website has literally changed the musical soundtrack of my life.
5. Favorite business tool(s):
Adobe Creative Suites 5, Adobe Lightroom and my Nikon camera system.
6. Favorite book(s):
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee — always a classic and the very first book I ever fell in love with. Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez — even translated it is one of the most beautifully written books. Notes from the Underground by Dostoyevsky. And lastly The Autobiography of Malcolm X by Alex Haley — a powerful story that more people should read.
7. Best place to unwind:
On the Philpott Reservoir in my kayak. It is so serene and peaceful to hear nature exist around me as I quietly navigate through it.

Barack Obama. He just seems like a really cool guy who just so happens to run the country.
9. You can never have too many:
Vegetables, love and new experiences.
10. Essential business tip:
Believe in your product. Don’t forget your dream. And study your competition.
