What is your favorite game or sport to watch or play?
I love staying active in general, but basketball is probably the most fun for me to play. People ask me all the time if I’m still playing tennis, and the answer is no; I haven’t played much tennis since graduating college.
What do you love to do outside of work?
I love hanging with friends. It doesn’t matter where we are or what we are doing, but if I’m with the right group of friends, then it’s always a fun time.
What’s your favorite travel destination, or where would you like to go?
There are a lot of places that I haven’t been to yet, and that I really want to visit. I think at the top of my list is visiting Greece, though. My last name, Steryous, is Greek, and apart from it being an incredibly scenic country it would be appropriate for me to experience the real Greek culture firsthand.
