Favorite past time / hobbies?
When I’m not on the road I enjoy messing with my variety of cars, and my many dogs.
Tell a funny story about being on the road…
Once I had a field mouse get inside my RV. While driving on the highway it hid under by front seat and found some sunflower seeds.  I drove home with my pant legs stuck in the top of my socks.  Once home my sons and several boys got the little fellow out.
What did you want to be when you were 12 years old?
At 12 a singing cowboy or the next Elvis Presley was my ambition.
What is your favorite childhood memory?
I have so many child memories as the youngest of four I got by with a lot.  Once I made a tall werewolf costume. We lived in the country at a corner of a four way stop. At night as a car stopped I would run at the passenger side and knock on the window.  It was great fun tell the police were called.

When I was 17 I worked at CR Anthony Department Store in menswear I was their youngest employee to get Top Sales in the company for the month of July.

My bucket list would include Scuba Diving in the Caribbean with my two sons and my brother, taking a hot air balloon ride, seeing wildlife in Alaska, visiting Italy, and joining hair club for men.
Name three things you never leave home without…
I try to never leave home without my cell phone, keys, and wallet. Of course I’ve had to return to the house many times to get one or all of those items.
My vice in life…

My passion is…
I’m most passionate about my family and my Jag.
My motto is…
If you borrow something always return it in better condition then you got it.
Me & my: senior prom / wedding / bad hair cut / proud moment/ school photo, etc.
My High School Prom my tux was blue. My dad made special blue drinks for me and my date. I did not know until we got to the dance that the drinks had stained our teeth blue to match our outfits.
What fashion trend do you wish would come back in style & why?
I want any fashion trend to return were young men will pull up their pants and
 were them at their waist not falling down.
If you were not a sales rep, what else would you do?
If I was not selling for U.N. I might like selling Classic or Custom Cars.
If gas mileage & space for samples, were not a requirement, I’d be driving…
My favorite auto is a 1969 RS SS Camaro.
