- If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
I think either Colorado or Tennessee. Both have a lot to offer enthusiasts of outdoor activities (camping, hiking, exploring). I love the scenery and landscape of both states.
- What could someone find you doing on a Saturday?
Tinkering in the garage or working on DIY projects around the house.
- What is the best gift you’ve ever been given?
Hands down…my son.
- What would you do if you won the lottery?
I would take care of my family. THEN, I would buy a RV and travel the country.
- What was your favorite subject in school?
Math, NERD ALERT!!
- Do you have any pets? What are they and their names?
Currently, I have one cat. His name is Harley.
- What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a Fighter Pilot in the Navy. Top Gun was popular movie when I was younger!
- What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?
As funny as it may sound, Paul McCartney. It was several years ago at a conference in Las Vegas. As part of the conference’s nightly social events, we were treated to a private show in the MGM Grand hotel concert arena. Only 2500 people. Even at 70 years old, that man rocked the house.
- What sound do you love?
The sizzle of bacon in the morning (or, really, at any time.)
- What’s the last picture on your phone?
A picture of the sun setting. I was sitting at the top of a 100ft sand dune watching it set.
