3 people you'd invite to dinner, living or dead: I'd love to see my mentor again, who passed away two years ago. I'd love to see my mother again, who passed away six years ago. And, for kicks, it'd be fun to have a conversation with Internet marketing expert Richard Heart, whom I do not know personally but is still alive and spends his time creating new projects on the blockchain.

The most important room in your house: Without a doubt the kitchen; it's where the family congregates, socializes and spends time together.
