Questionnaire

What do you enjoy most about your job?

 I'm a people person, so I enjoy interacting with all of our customers. I also enjoy the challenge of helping our customers find the right product at the right price for their job.

What are three things you enjoy doing on your days off?

I enjoy watching baseball and football (Go Braves and Falcons!), taking my dog Moe on walks, and spending time with my lovely wife Diana.

Who has been the most influential person in your life and why?

My dad. He's served in 3 branches of the military and gave me the discipline to help me achieve my goals. But he's also the dad that came to every one of my games when I played sports as a kid.

What is a goal you want to accomplish in the upcoming year?

Definitely would like to buy a house. I need a backyard!

Where have you traveled to that is different and unique? Would you go back?

I've been to several places around the world, but I'd say Paris was the most unique. It's a challenge to get around where everyone speaks a different language, but it's fun! It's also where I proposed to my wife, so we'd definitely love to go back.

Where were you born?

 I was born in New Jersey, but I've lived most of my life in Virginia, so I don't consider myself a yankee!

What was your first car?

A 1986 Chevy Nova. No radio, no air conditioning, no ceiling, and a broken gas gauge. Pretty standard for a teenage kid.

What are your hobbies?

Besides being lazy on the couch, I enjoy bowling and golf, and I love watching the Braves any time I can. I also enjoy playing video games, and playing poker with my buddies every Wednesday.

What is your favorite restaurant?

Tazza Kitchen in Short Pump. Authentic brick oven pizzas and their beef brisket is the best I've had anywhere. We even had them cater our wedding!

What is your favorite movie?

I can't say I have a favorite movie since I like a lot of different movies. I have a very eclectic taste, so it's hard to narrow down.

What is your biggest accomplishment or something that you’re most proud of?

I'd have to say my biggest accomplishment was prank calling a radio station. They wound up playing the call on the radio after they came back from their break while me and my buddy sat and listened. Hardest I've ever laughed, I was quite proud of that.
