Do you have a favorite quote?
“The man who has no imagination has no wings.” – Muhammad Ali

If you had a superpower what would it be?
I’d be satisfied with possessing the Cosmic Cube so that I could change all reality.

You're happiest when?
The burgers have finished cooking.

What is your hidden talent?
Able to remember an incredible treasure trove of history and trivia on theatrical cartoons from the 1920’s to the 1960’s. After that decade my powers begin to fade. But if you need to know who directed a Bugs Bunny cartoon, just ask.

Best Part/Favorite Part of your job at SMM?
I enjoy working with the people here.

Favorite Sports/Sports Teams
The Cubs.

Favorite TV Show/Movie
I’m addicted to Gotham. It is fun to watch all the villains without many heroes getting in the way. I also enjoy classic comedians including, but not limited to Chaplin, Keaton, Laurel & Hardy and the Marx Bros. I also think Mel Brooks’ The Producers and Young Frankenstein are very funny.

Strange facts about you?
Both thumbs are able to move backwards 90 degrees.

Favorite Band/Music?
I like a lot of music. I end up listening to mostly New Wave and Alternative Rock. Elvis Costello, R.E.M. Pearl Jam, Talking Heads, Squeeze, The Clash, etc
