I'd say trophy wife, but that would mean I only want to stand around and look good. But really, it's more like housewife because I actually enjoy domestic chores. It's my dream to be able to run the household, cook meals, take care of the animals and kids (down the line,) have a garden, and spend my free time volunteering or doing self directed learning.

Tempting offer. On a scale of Shrek to pre Godfather Marlon Brando, how attractive are you?

So glad I’m not alone. I naturally love planning events and taking charge. I can take charge of my family + my kids PTA meetings + plan fun family events/vacations!

The animal shelter or a senior's home. I'd like to walk dogs/cuddle cats and spend some time with seniors who don't get visitors.

Still chasing the high of being the front man for a farmers market stand in Mexico, arguably where my sales career got its roots. I'd run a farmers market stand and make and sell whiskey, pickled things, cured meats, and cheeses, and most definitely get high on my own supply until I run my own business into the ground.

We're building a Tech Council (official launch in a couple weeks, which is a shit ton of work). 

Anyway, via tracked programming and C-suite led events the goal is to showcase our local tech talent as well as connect employees/employers, and just drive social connection within a group of people not known for driving those social relationships themselves. 

The overarching way all of the above is achieved is via Monthly programming/events, as well as annual events that highlight local tech talent as well as businesses utilizing tech in unique ways to achieve the mission, and those who create the tech that shapes the world we live in. 

Super exciting, and it's a niche that's been sorely missed in my community!

I always thought it would be cool to go back to culinary school and become a chef. My family owned a restaurant when I was younger, and find cooking therapeutic. It’s tough to consider that path since it’s such a different lifestyle than what I’m doing today.
