-- What's your favorite part of your job?

I love that I am able to combine my business expertise into my work on a daily basis.

-- What's your dream story?

I don’t have a dream story, although I have been told to write an auto-biography on multiple occasions.

-- What did you want to be when you were growing up?

I had always wanted to be in the field of business as I was growing up.

-- What got you interested in (news, sports, weather)?

I have always been a natural born competitor, so it makes sense that I got into sports at an early age. When I had to stop playing sports due to genetic health complications, I got really into news because I always enjoyed the feeling of being the first to report a story because of the competitiveness, which was similar to the feeling I got from playing sports.

-- Favorite Book?

I am a big fan of the Calvin & Hobbes comic books. They remind me of a simpler time in my life. In fact, I still have the first Calvin & Hobbes book that I purchased at my First Grade Scholastic Book Fair.

-- Have you been told you look like someone famous?

People tend to tell me that I look a lot like Eminem. I’m still waiting for the day that people say Eminem looks like me.

-- If you could spend a week anywhere, where would you go?

I would go to Italy and purchase a plot of land and begin preparations on my future estate.

-- If you had access to a time machine, where and when would you go?

I would go to the early 20th Century because I'm always being reminded that I was born 100 years too late.
