What quality do you most value in your teammates?

Their ingenuity.

What have you learned to do as an adult that many people learn in childhood?

Eat a boiled egg.

Would you rather go into outer space or to the depths of the ocean?

Depths of the ocean. Ever since Ben Affleck, Bruce Willis and Aerosmith saved the world in Armageddon, the idea of space travel has been ruined for me.

What is the last book you read and would you recommend it?

David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell. I would absolutely recommend this book as it really makes you think about what it takes to be innovative and how adversity and/or perceived disadvantages can lead to positive (yet possibly unexpected) results.
