Your most embarrassing date moment?
I once used Hubway (Boston's bikeshare program) to bike to a dinner date, but all the docks were full at the nearby station... and all stations in a 1-mi radius. I decided the best solution was to ask the hostess to check my bike in the coat check, who graciously wheeled my bike through the crowded restaurant. My poor date was sitting "patiently" for about 15 minutes at the table waiting for me to deal with this debacle. Fortunately the rest of the date went okay (except an hour later when I excused myself to park the bike outside at a dock).
What career accomplishment are you most proud of?
I'm most proud of growing the Venus brand to record-high dollar shares and household penetration levels, driven in part by programs that I led and initiated, over the course of the 2 years I've been on the brand team. It's always so exciting to see ideas through to execution (in-store, online, etc.), and then see them followed by excellent sales lifts.
