What do you like about your job?
I have always enjoyed philosophical and religious questions. For as long as I can remember, I have had an orientation to questions and to wonder. My job combines the questions of life with the practice of life. That’s what I like about what I do.
What do you do for fun?
I enjoy movies with my partner. I love playing with our kids. I enjoy sports, hiking and carpentry.
What was the last good book you read?
I read a lot, so it is very difficult to chose the last “good book.” I like biography and history, and I particularly like historical novels. The last good book I read that impressed me this way was Fall on Your Knees by Ann-Marie MacDonald.
