One word to describe your work environment: Collaborative

Rules to live by in business: Over-communicate, do the right thing 100 out of 100 times, and be mindful of work life integration. 

If you could invite one person to dinner (living or dead, but not related to you) who would it be and where would you go? Nora Ephron – witty, blunt and funny, dinner at the old Four Seasons restaurant to give her plenty of fodder for our conversation.
