To Carlo

Early this morning, my mentor and friend Carlo passed away after a long battle with Cancer. I worked with Carlo for almost 3 years, and he's one of the first people I ever looked up to professionally. I've always admired how he carried himself because he made everything look so easy. With his wit and deadpanned facial expressions, he always had the ability to make anyone laugh. And he's the only person I know that can step on stage in front of 1000 people rocking prescription sunglasses (he left his glasses in a taxi).

The first time he interviewed me, he told me that if I told him I was a Manchester United follower, I would be fired immediately. Thank God I wasn't.
