I work in communications and public affairs. I try to squeeze in as much reading as I can while still spending time with my wife and two kids (and cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Michigan Wolverines during football season).

  1. I’m not one to typically write comments on books, but When Turtles Fly is easily the most inspiring book I’ve ever read. I got it in the mail earlier this week and couldn’t put it down. Really compelling stories and advice from some of the best people in the world. My challenges don’t seem so unsurmountable anymore and I’m moitvated to make some big changes at work. I truly believe When Turtles Fly will become a best seller! It’s great to finally have a book that kept my attention.
