In His Words
What is your personal motto? “Success is not owned, it is rented. And the rent is due EVERY DAY!”
What is your favorite airport – why? “Baltimore – because I can get food and a drink before I go through security.”
What was your first paying job? “At the age of 12 I told my parents I wanted a job. I needed money (oh to be young again). So I ended up shoveling out horse stalls and bailing hay. ”
What has been your favorite vacation? “Jamaica. Always and forever the best memories and vacations I’ve been on…..the people, the food….the distance from the noise. Love Jamaica.”
What would we never guess about you? “I am a published poet…yep, let that sink in. Despite my carefully crafted ‘biker’ exterior…I write poetry, do readings and have travelled North America giving readings. It’s OK if you need a minute to let that sink in. But when it does, you won’t be surprised….communication is something I am passionate about.”
