Knowledge and experience comes from:
Years at various agencies, trial and error, variety, persistence, and repetition.
First or worst job:
Working in the kitchen of a supper club back home in Wisconsin. I started out washing dishes and worked my way up to cook in a few years. While the heat and pressure was pretty miserable, it did teach me how to handle stress.
Riding motorcycles, snowboarding, nature, great food, craft beer, music, movies and television, fictional books, my incredibly creative and talented friends and coworkers.
Most embarrassing song willing to admit is on my iPhone:
Katy Perry ft. Snoop Dogg - California Gurls
Recently I was compared to Seth MacFarlane, I guess I'm okay with that one.
A Ryan Reynolds movie entitled "Definitely, Maybe".
I can grill a mean piece of beef. Though, maybe not such a secret since I always end up having the grilling responsibilities at BBQs.
A word of advice on Ballard:
Enjoy as many of the restaurants and watering holes on Ballard Ave that you can during the week, but take a cab on the weekends.
Nostalgic childhood memory:
Going to my first baseball game with my dad. I have no memory of the game itself, but I clearly remember walking back to my grandmother's house after the game along traintracks.
What would you do if you knew you could not fail:
Open a brewpub with an attached motorcycle shop.
