  1. What is your favorite thing to do (other than workout at CrossFit Dover)?

My background is in music, so I like to dive into that as much as I can.  Playing the bass has been my latest escapade.

2. If you are going to treat yourself, what is your favorite “cheat meal”?

I joke that I’m a guy that loves bad food, good beer, and great whiskey, but if I have to pick a meal, I’d have to go Italian.  Lazy Day Lasagna is my favorite.

3. Where would go and what would you do on your dream vacation?

I’m a beach bum, so if I got the opportunity, I’d like to go see the top most beautiful beaches on each continent.  Touring the world and hanging out on a beach – it’d be a great party.

4. If you could have any career, what would be your ideal job?

Are you kidding?  Rockstar!

5. What is your favorite CrossFit movement or workout?

I feel like CrossFit is still so new to me and I’m still learning,​​​​ so it’s tough to pick.  But I am surprised at how much the wall ball shots have grown on me.

6. Anything else you’d like to share (fun fact, interesting information about you, etc.)?

I’m a local boy, born and raised in slower lower Delaware.  I spent 10 years working for B&B Music, which is where I met my wonderful wife Christine.  Our two children are our current daytime entertainment, and sometimes the middle of the night as well.  I made a major career change about two years ago and am currently back at school to become an accountant.  One of my favorite quotes is: “Keep smiling, it makes people wonder what you’re up to.”  Don’t know who said it but I’ve used it for over a decade now.  Anything else you want to know, just ask me, I’m always up for a good conversation.
