Shawn J: a self-recipe.
1) Take equal parts professional, academic, fanboy, and off-the-clock
2) Season with a curious nature, believe in hard work, team effort, and a passion for public service
3) Marinate with a servant leader philosophy, an appreciation for field work, being a mentor and learning from a mentor, and experiences living and working in multiple countries,
4) Simmer a few decades and voila!
