What is your favorite hobby or thing to do with your personal time?

I enjoy spending time with my family and bowling.

What is something about you that would surprise people that already know you?

I laid sod grass from the age of 15 to 21 and my father taught me how to drive a semi-truck.

If you could have dinner with somebody famous, living or dead, who would it be and why?

My mother! She is a very strong and independent person. She raised 5 kids on her own, walks at least 3 miles per day, is always there when we need anything and will do anything for anybody. All at the “ripe young age” of 84.

How do you define “exceptional”?

Exceptional to me means more than going above and beyond. It means being respectful, considerate, and caring. You can be good at what you do and go above and beyond but, if you don;t treat people right, then you are not “exceptional.”
