Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us:
I have what is known as Brachydactyly type D thumbs, which is a genetic trait my father, grandfather, and great grandfather share. Long story short, I use to tell people I chopped half of my right thumb to just get a kick out of their reaction.

Tell us three things most people don’t know about you:

      1. I can play the accordion, guitar and trumpet.
      2. I am the second oldest of four.
      3. I will watch just about any movie that has Will Farrell in it. The guy just knows how to make me laugh.

Three words to best describe you:
Friendly. Ambitious. Positive

Anything else you want to share (family, hobbies, whatever)
I have O negative blood type (universal blood cell) which only 6.6% of the population has. So I like to donate as much as possible and feel great knowing I contributed towards someone’s life.
