1. What are your favorite books?
Although I like to keep up with a number of contemporary authors and their new works, I tend to favor the literary classics I first encountered in academic settings. Aldous Huxley and George Orwell are responsible for two of my favorite books, “A Brave New World,” and “1984,” respectively, but there are so many more I could easily list.
2. What’s your favorite type of food?
I don’t indulge in it all that often, but there are so many small soul food places in and around the Atlanta area in which I live and work, making it essentially impossible to avoid for too long. Most of the restaurants are family-owned and operated and have been in business for decades, so you know the food is going to be exceptional.
3. Describe your typical day.
I work with a lot of different divisions on a wide range of projects, so I typically begin my day by checking in on the projects those divisions are working on to get a sense of the progress being made. We collaborate and exchange ideas relating to the specific project, and then we work together to develop a plan for implementation if we agree on an idea we feel will improve the outcome in some way.
4. What’s your biggest accomplishment to date?
QASymphony has really made a difference in the way companies are able to function, so I feel a tremendous sense of accomplishment over the way we have created a test management tool capable of generating such positive outcomes while enhancing the operational efficiency of other companies as they test new software.
5. What are you most proud of?
I am most proud of the fact that my company values and encourages contributions from the entirety of its staff, regardless of the division in which they work or their specific area of expertise. I believe that this philosophy in which all suggestions are thoughtfully considered has been beneficial in so many respects, including the establishment of a sense of company culture and collaboration.
