Peter Griffith is the founder or Mentum and long-time Bears fan. His need to create exceptional work is driven 60% by the college tuitions of his three kids, 9% so he can go scuba diving somewhere he hasn’t been before, 1% to be able to afford a good bowl of ramen and the rest equally divided by both the desire to make people laugh and the fear of being laughed at. If you’re interested, his official resume can be gawked at here.
