More About Me
Tell us about your career journey and how you ended up here.
My childhood was less than ideal. I was left alone while my parents worked all day and night. Being alone forced me to grow up fast, and I missed out on the fun of playing. My solution was to give myself the gift of a missed childhood by buying and playing with toys.
Describe yourself in 5-7 words.
Playful, optimistic, collaborative, creative and curious.
Tell us about a time when you thrived at work, and what you learned about yourself from that experience.
Achieving the Guinness World Record for having the most wind-up toys in a private collection. I hope to inspire others to follow their passion and dream big.
