Who has been a great influence on your life? How?

My parents. My dad was very dedicated to his career; he was a hard worker who loved what he did and continued to learn and teach others throughout his career. My mom, a teacher in both science and art, sees beauty and joy in everything.

What would you like to see invented in your lifetime

When asked this question in 5th grade, I imagined a self-driving car. My dreams are coming true and in our backyard of Pittsburgh! Both my son and I get giddy when we see the Uber cars traveling through the city.
