GET TO KNOW ME

First Job?

I spent two summers changing light bulbs and unclogging toilets as part of the custodial team at an office building outside of Seattle.

Worst Job?

Those two summers I spent changing light bulbs and unclogging toilets as part of the custodial team at an office building outside of Seattle.

Death Row Last Meal?

Cheeseburger, french fries & a shake… from Dick’s Drive-in, a Seattle institution.

First CD?

Both Boyz II Men’s Cooleyhighharmony and Billy Joel’s Piano Man were included in my initial “8 CDs for a penny” order from the Columbia House Music Club. My taste has always been eclectic, and often time questionable.

THIS OR THAT

Dogs or Cats?

Are you kidding me? Dogs.

Beatles or Stones?

Can’t we like both?

Yankees or Mets?

Sadly, Mariners.
