10 Things You didn’t Know about Me
- Second oldest of 10 kids
- Graduated high school and started college at 15
- Fronted an alt-rock band in the 90’s called My Cat Jeoffry
- Not a fan of any body of water I can’t see the bottom of (thanks to almost drowning as a kid, plus front-row seats to Jaws on opening weekend)
- I own an extensive 80’s new wave vinyl collection, but not a turntable
- I was accepted into a doctoral program in 2004 to focus the social informatics of collaboration technology, but due to delayed starts because of my consulting work, I lost my placement and then never re-applied
- Have been married for almost 23 years
- Wanted my daughter’s middle name to be ‘Duran.’ My wife said no.
- Massive fan of all-things Orson Scott Card
- Had 3 majors as an undergrad: spent 2.5 years in industrial design, switch to film direction for a year, then landed on marketing and business, later getting my MBA
- I’m a huge Spinal Tap fan
You see what I did there? I can’t go a day without referencing Spinal Tap, Fletch, or one of the Steve Oedekerk thumb movies at least once.
