Tell us a little about your family.

Most Unusual Job:
Not really unusual but a funny situation. I needed a job really bad out of college, so I applied at a landscaping company. I had an interview and showed up in a suit and tie not knowing what I would be walking into. I walked into some guys barn and everything was covered in dirt and dust, he was sitting at a table and just had me fill out paperwork and said I was hired. No questions. Nothing. Super sketchy. I lasted 2 weeks and then started at Starbucks.
I love Apple Juice
Favorite Sport or Outdoor Activity?
I am a huge fan of all sports. I am most dedicated to Manchester United an English Premier League soccer (football) team. If you aren't interested in that I cheer for Michigan, North Carolina, the Detroit Tigers, and am changing to a Kansas City Chiefs fan because the Lions tear my heart out every year.
Last thing you Googled?
World War II. I saw 1917 and that movie takes place during WWI so of course, I read all I could about WWI. Now I'm reading about WWII.
I love planes and airports. They literally fascinate me! However, I can't become a pilot because I'm colorblind.
Best IT Advice?
Always restart when you have an issue first. It's like falling asleep. Most of the time a good sleep will help you feel better. Not all the time, but most of the time.
