How do you stay sharp?

To stay sharp and focused you have to be able to de-stress and unwind. My activity of choice for this is lifting weights. I’m able to leave any and all frustrations in the weight-room and come out clear minded.

I am also an avid reader of anything and everything: books, articles, blogs, forums, etc. In this day and age, we have access to so much information at the tip of our fingers. You might as well dive in and absorb as much as possible.

What quality do you most value in your teammates?

Everyone at Quarry encourages and builds upon each other’s ideas. If you have a project you are working on they will help you, provide a second perspective, offer suggestions and insight that you hadn’t thought of and together make something better than any one person could do alone.

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

Outer space, without a doubt. Carl Sagan explained it much more eloquently than I ever could, “Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us—there is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation as if a distant memory, of falling from a height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.”
