How do you prefer to start your day?
During the week…with a cup of coffee and my dogs.
On the weekends, same cup (new coffee)…
Well, different cup too, same dogs, add my wife and a
little reflection on the last week.
What would we most likely find you doing on the weekend?
Off-road playing with my Jeep, fixing what I broke
when I was off-road playing with said Jeep, under the hood of
my truck, or, on my boat with my friends.
What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?
I was a PADI certified Scuba Instructor and have been diving in many places all
over the world. (Truk Lagoon, Palau, Honduras, Cayman Islands,
Cozumel, Bahamas, Florida Keys, Great Lakes,
New York Finger Lakes, the last German U-Boat sunk in
WWII off the coast of Rhode Island).
