What year did you join AAAE?
Formally in 2013 but have spoken at a number of AAAE functions prior to that date.
Who is your industry mentor?
Airport Director John L. Martin (retired from SFO like me)
What has being involved in AAAE meant for your career?
It has allowed me to stay connected with airport colleagues since my "retirement" from SFO in 2010 and the contemporary issues facing airport executives as I now lecture and research on airport-related issues overseas since being awarded my PhD from an Australian university in 2013.
Favorite Airport Code?
SFO (After alll, it has been my home base for most of my life.)
I have been to many globally and still have many more that I wish to visit.
Landside or Airside?
What's in your carry on?
Since we are limited to 15.5 pounds on virtually every Middle East airline not including our "personal" bag (e.g., computer bag or purse), I carry a few washable linen shirts and pants I picked up in Mumbai a few years back, a no-iron khaki chino slacks with an appropriate no-iron long sleeve cotton dress shirt and tie, and one or two very loud and colorful tropical shirts along with a one or two pairs of shorts...with sandals.
