Where did you grow up?
How many years have you been in the industry?

Tell a funny story about being on the road…
I was in a Starbucks working. A Johnny Cash song came on their sound system. The song was about being happy in the blues or something like that. The Ladies behind the counter started singing along with the song and they were smiling and having fun. Then on of the customers started singing along with the song too. Then another customer and started singing and dancing. I thought I was in a new Starbucks Musical. I usually have coffee, however I had a bottle of water. I think I should have had the coffee that day….maybe I would have participated too.
What did you want to be when you were 12 years old?
I wanted to be an Aircraft Pilot.
What is your favorite childhood memory?
Visiting my Grandmother in Kentucky.
When I was 17, I work at a cement block factory for a summer. I drove some heavy equipment,
a very large pay loader. I’m pretty sure that they no longer let 17 year olds drive heavy equipment.
Name 5 things always found in your fridge?
Diet Peach Tea
If you were a quilt block, what one would you be & why?
Grandmothers Puzzle. My grandmother was a big influence in my life and I think
sometime people have a hard time figuring me out.

Is the Hokey Pokey really what it is all about?
I would say that is a matter of opinion. When every one is dancing and having fun, I think is more about “Celebration” by Kool and the Gang.
If gas mileage & space for samples, were not a requirement, I’d be driving…
’01 Ford Mustang Cobra
