Q&A with John

If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would it be and why?

Thomas Jefferson as his involvement was paramount in the creation of the first county to be founded liberal principles and freedom. He served as the first ambassador to our most important ally during the Revolutionary War and he founded the University of Virginia.

What’s the most unusual place you have visited?

I spent 8 weeks in Belo Horizonte, Brazil serving in a financial consulting role with Ernst & Young. I led a team performing an international market expansion project for a health care technology firm. As part of this trip I was able to visit Sao Paulo, Manauas, Foz de Iguassu and Rio de Janeiro as they were preparing for the 2016 Olympics.
