A little About your Family

I have been married to my wife Ashley for over 7 years, she’s ok. Together we have a 4-year-old chug named Flynn and he is the greatest thing ever created on this planet.

 

What was your most unusual job before you started with HT?

Packed circular saw blades for a month once, not that great.

 

Favorite Sport?

Baseball is technically my favorite sport, though I am the first to admit it is terribly boring to watch. College football is specifically my favorite sport to watch, but European Soccer is slowly taking over that spot I must admit.

 

Favorite Beverage:

My favorite beverage is beer, and my favorite beer is maybe possibly Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster.

 

Favorite Food?

Tacos, next question…

 

Last thing you googled?

The honest answer is “how many milliliters in a cup” and I don’t even remember doing that.

 

Fun Facts?

Outside of your traditional nerd stuff like video games, music, and movies; I’m obsessed with weather. But my big-time additional hobby is The Fantasy Wars. 5 Years ago, I started a yearlong fantasy sports league that combines all major sports and other sport related events. You earn points throughout the year and we crown the champion every April.
