How would you describe the state of the world today in 3 words:

Tenous, short-sighted, wisdom-needing

What is your greatest hope for the future of the world?

To treat each person in a way that cultivates their potential.  You never know who will cure cancer, walk on Mars, become your best friend, or do you a great kindness

Biggest lesson you learnt in your professional life so far?

Intelligence only gets you so far, how you use when you interact with people is where you’ll have the biggest impact

What is one piece of advice you want to give to our students?

Don’t miss the chance to take a good risk, and be sure to have fun (you will never be younger than you are today).
