What is one thing about you that might surprise people?
I trained in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for 10 years and was lucky enough to train with people who have fought in the UFC and/or competed in the Abu Dhabi’s.
What’s your biggest pet peeve?
I’m a neat freak. I like things organized and clean. Not sure when this happened for me but as I’ve gotten older its gotten worse (or better depending on what you like!). My t-shirts are organized by color, for example.
If you could have lunch with anyone, alive or dead, who would it be and why?
Albert Einstein. I’m not sure I’d understand him but would love the opportunity to sit and have him explain his thought process as he came to realize different aspects of our world and the universe. Either that, or have a few beers with Bill Murray.
What’s the first concert you attended?
12-13 years old. No parents. Rochester War Memorial with 2 friends. Concert was Run DMC, DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince and Public Enemy. I had no clue about any of the groups…my friends were big fans and invited me along. I still listen to Run DMC.
What TV show is your guilty pleasure?
Cartoons. I realize that’s a genre not a “show”. I’ve got 3 boys so that works out well but drives my wife crazy. Adult Swim on Cartoon Network is great. And just about anything my kids want to watch. Dr. Katz is a GREAT cartoon for adults that was done in the late 80’s early 90’s. Comedians being interviewed by a psychiatrist. Had a TON of little known folks back then who are big stars now. VERY funny.
