Fun Facts

Latest Talent?

I started taking piano lessons a few years ago. It turns out I didn’t miss my calling as a pianist.

First Office Job?

During summers I worked the phones and processed invoices for a plumbing company. I also had to drive supplies to the guys at various work sites so I learned quite a bit of plumbing.
