What did you want to be when you grew up?I have this memory of being a kid in the grocery store with my mom when someone asked me that question, to which I responded “rich.” But I probably wanted to be a midfielder for Manchester United most.
Favorite Hobby:Watching football/tv/movies with my wife.
Favorite food?I’d have to say it’s a toss up between french fries, steak, tacos, burgers, bacon and almost anything sweet.
Something you can’t live without?My wife, family, dogs. Probably smart-assery as well. I can’t help it, it’s genetic.
Secret talent?I’m really good at trivia. I have a wealth of useless knowledge that brings me no additional wealth.
Interesting factoid?I’m not all that interesting. I have a fairly extensive collection of single malt scotch. Does that count?

We have awesome people that work well together and I like being part of a team that does work we can be proud of.What advice would you give to someone who wanted a career in graphic design?
