» What he likes most about himself: My curiosity. 

» What he likes most about others: Creativity, especially when it challenges me to think differently about the world. 

» Country or rock? Indie rock and alternative folk. Obscure bands mostly, but my wife doesn’t let me play my music when we entertain.

» Words to live by: From Theodore Roosevelt: “Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.”
