Getting the Edge on Graham

Something most people don’t know about me:
I placed 66th in the nation at the National High School Debate finals in 2000.

Worst job:
In college, I worked in a warehouse unpacking boxes of nursing scrubs, counting them and then repackaging them. The warehouse was in North Carolina and I worked there during the summer with no air conditioning.

First job:
I worked for my mom who was a caterer cooking appetizers, desserts, and also serving during events.  She may have been my toughest boss.

Favorite quote:
Fortune favors the bold.

Pets:
1 Springer Spaniel.

Embarrassing story about yourself:
I was blind copied on an email where a hiring manager told a sales person that she was passing on a candidate that I thought was perfect for the job.  I accidentally replied all with, “Lame!” We didn’t get to work on the job again.

Who inspires you:
I take inspiration from many different people.  I am inspired by my dad and his successful career and great example, my wife and how she juggles running, career, and family, and the professional ultra runner Killian Journet, who displays that records are meant to be broken.

Favorite Food:
Authentic New York style pizza.

Favorite hobbies:
Trail running, skiing, mountaineering, trout fishing, and hiking with my family.
