What’s something you’ve done, but will never do again?

Skydiving. It’s a unique experience but I wouldn’t say it's fun. Taking off in a plane with a garage door built into the side is not natural.

If you have an open schedule on a weekend to do anything, what do you enjoy doing?

If there’s good wind and free time then I’d prefer to sail. The weather itself doesn’t necessarily have to be ‘good’, just good wind.

What is the best advice you were ever given? Who was it from?

This is the first day of the rest of your life - My Mom.

What song would you sing at karaoke night?

Would I? Have I. Humpty Dance. I own it. Don’t judge.

What is your favorite movie of all-time?

National Lampoons Vacation. Chevy Chase was brilliant. Christmas is decent. European lags. Keep the new one.

What was the best concert you ever attended?

Phish’s Clifford Ball in 1996. Two days of camping out of a 1981 Toyota Corolla on an Air Force Base in Upstate New York with 70K other ‘Phans’.
