Where have you traveled and where would you still like to go?
Last year I spent a month in South America. Starting in Bocas Del Toro, Panama I set sail on a 4 day boat trip through the San Blas Islands on the eastern coast and down to into Colombia.

What’s the most non traditional job you’ve ever had?

What are your favorite books/movies?
Favorite books – The Jack Reacher series. Easy to read but so unbelievably entertaining. So many movies. Off the top – Forrest Gump, The Patriot, School of Rock.
What’s the one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
