What is your connection to the UW Carbone Cancer Center?
My friend Nicholas Pratt, who is part of the ELB, peeked my curiosity.   After talking to him and learning more about the mission and program, I was keen to be involved.

What is your favorite ELB / UWCCC event?
I look forward to the Carbone Cancer Center lab tours.  To see the UWCCC lab space and be around the hardworking researcher teams is the tactile reward of the ELB mission.

What is something interesting about you?
I am originally from Germany.  My parents and sibling immigrated to the United States in 1994.  They packed up the whole family, we all got 2 suitcases, and went on an adventure that changed our lives.  Since then my home and live has been rooted here in the United States.

Where is your favorite vacation spot?
Honestly there would not be one favorite vacation spot.  There are countless places in the world that peek my interest, all of which are unique and would be wonderful to visit.

Everyone has a guilty pleasure.  What is yours?
Chocolate.  I love chocolate.  My wife laughs and smiles when she brings home a stack of “Ritter Sport” from the grocery store.
