Favorite OMNI”Tude” – Aptitude – As Chief Science Officer I have a deep affection for the science that is the foundation for our solutions.

Favorite line from a movie – “You want the truth? You can’t handle the truth!” Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men. Great performance!

Best advice ever received – Don’t be afraid of change or taking a risk.

Things you like to do when you aren’t working – I dabble in various activities but cooking is one of my favorite hobbies. Fortunately, I get to practice it just about every day. I am particularly fond of Creole/Cajun and traditional Southern cuisine.

What profession, other than your own, would you be interested in – If I could, I would like to have been a professional musician in a classic rock band. There was only one thing holding me back….talent.

What are you nuts about? – I am a big animal lover, particularly dogs. I have always had one or more dogs in my life. Right now, I am nuts about my BFF beagle, Jasper.

Favorite Author/Book – Walker Percy, “The Thanatos Syndrome”. In my opinion, Percy was one of the best authors of the twentieth century. I have a number of his signed first editions. He had a number of great books but this one was a particularly fun read.
