If you had all the money in the world, what would you buy?

I'd probably just make sure I had a house, a car and enough money to travel and enjoy life. I'd probably like to journey to Asia and the Caribbean, the South American continent.

The issue you care about most?

That every individual has the opportunity to have a place they call home, and a decent home -- something where, whether they own it or they rent it, at least they can have a lot of pride and respect and feel comfortable.

BlackBerry or iPhone?

BlackBerry.

The best advice you ever received?

My high school band director said to me that I needed to change my attitude. . . . I was stubborn and had an attitude problem all the way up to my senior year. But when I graduated, those words stuck with me. . . . and I immediately changed my attitude and became a very different person. I realized the world wasn't about me; it was about everybody.
