Tough question. I think I would like to have been an explorer
somebody like either Lewis or Clark. Lewis went crazy after
the expedition and killed himself, so I would probably prefer
to model after Clark. To be able to go out into an untouched and
unknown area of the world would be great.

Italy. Paige and I were there for our Honeymoon and we had a
great time. To be more specific I would say the Cinque Terre region
of Italy along the northern Mediterranean Coast.

job and do anything, what would it be?

If you found $200 in the trash and you had to spend it that
day, what would you do with it?
I would probably go and restock my fly tying supplies. I am a
huge fly fisherman and I tye my own flies. Supplies get a little
pricey, but $200 would probably cover almost the next year for
me (and my Dad too. I usually keep him well stocked).
What kind of music you like the most and why?
I have Punk roots so I would say Punk, but what is punk
anyway? I listen to everything from Classical to rock. I am not
a huge Rap or Country fan. Besides those two, anything goes.
Who have you been most influenced by and why?
My parents. I think the same goes for most everyone though. They
raised me and taught me a lot about life, Both good and bad (not
a lot of bad). Dad influenced a lot of my Hobbies such as skiing
and fishing. For the most part I have to say I thank them everyday.

different things and many are dependent upon the season. I would
say we eat a lot of pasta in our house. Different types of noodles
like Angel Hair, Ravioli, Rigitoni, etc. We mix a lot of different
vegetables into different sauces.
