Now that I'm here, I get to do so every day!

This applies to anyone working in any role: be dedicated, be passionate, work intelligently, and always give 100%. Quality is never an accident; it is an iterative process that refines your product throughout the entire product life cycle. It is always the result of intelligent, focused effort.
What is your favorite hobby and why?
My favorite hobby is sewing. I love it because I get to create new dresses for my kids and because it's a fantastic creative outlet. I definitely get a lot of zen moments doing it!
