02 Q&A
What is something most people do not know about you?

I am an eagle scout, and I come from a long line of eagle scouts in my family. The list of eagle scouts in my family includes my father and his 3 three brothers, my brother, a few cousins, and myself. My son has started in cub scouts and looks to keep the Kennedy family tradition alive.

What influential book(s) have you read?

Early in my career I read books like 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People' and 'How to Win Friends and Influence People.' Some of the books on software engineering that I still fall back to are Steve McConnell's 'Code Complete' and Chris Vander Mey's 'Shipping Greatness.'
