Most memorable Elauwit experience:

Talking to Jermaine Green, an Elauwit network analyst, and asking him how he was holding up in the thick of "move-in" this summer, and him telling me that we were organized so well it really wasn't so tough as prior years even with more to do.

Favorite movie or TV show:

They Might be Giants

Favorite book:

Words for the Wind by Theodore Roethke

Most interesting place visited:

Istanbul

Most people don't know:

I walked the Camino Portugese from Porto, Portugal to Santiago, Spain (the burial place of St. James) with my son in 2009, an important medieval pilgrimage that has enjoyed new popularity in the past several decades. And, there was a short side-trip to Pamplona for the running of the bulls.
