A 30-second interview with...

How do you interpret the secret to happiness?

Commit to honesty with myself and others. At the same time, don't take yourself too seriously.

That one moment when you caught yourself saying something your parents would say and you swore you would never use it.

I don't care what your friends parents are letting them do, you're not doing it.

What is the best professional advice someone ever gave you and you still live by?

Always double check the law and don't depend on your memory.
