What is your favorite childhood book or literacy memory?
When we were first taught to read in my grammar school, the teacher took us to the school library and said we could check out any book we wanted. I remember being excited by the vastness of written material already in existence. I picked an 8 page, 5 chapter book and the sense of accomplishment upon finishing every chapter is still a fond memory.
Flashback to when you were 10 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be an Astronaut or a commercial airline pilot.
If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be?
Sailing and fishing on Faial, the island where my dad was born.
