WHERE DID YOU GROW UP?
I grew up in New England, about 25 miles north of Boston.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE AND WHY?
I love so many movies for different reasons, but The Fifth Element has been at the top more often than not. It has a great cast and a wildly creative 90's era future sci-fi era adventure love story. The imagery is beautifully inventive. The score is both tasteful and hilarious. Luc Besson is successfully playful without taking it too seriously.
WHAT WOULD YOUR DREAM VACATION BE?
Sailing around the Caribbean.
WHAT’S SOMETHING PEOPLE WOULDN’T GUESS ABOUT YOU?
I express myself better with a guitar than anything else.
WHAT BOOKS ARE ON YOUR NIGHTSTAND?
"Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain" - Oliver Sacks
WHAT’S THE BEST PLACE YOU HAVE EVER VISITED?
St. Barths was best for relaxing, New York for the music scene, Tortolla for the sailing, England for the soccer, Kauai for exotic exploration, and the Utah desert for camping.
WHO IS THE BEST BAND AND TO SEE LIVE?
I love live music and go to shows all the time. I can't pick just one, but my regular favorites include the Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Polish Ambassador, and the Bad Plus.
IF YOU WERE A SUPERHERO, WHAT WOULD YOUR SUPERPOWER BE AND WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH IT?
Selfishly I've always wanted telekinesis. I would daydream about moving objects with my mind, building impossible things and flying myself and friends around. I still think that would be neat, but the responsible adult in me wants to be able to connect and communicate with nature and animals. I would try to understand and share the best ways for us to coexist with the rest of this planet.
IF YOU HAD TO WATCH ONE SPORT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
Soccer. Never mind the passion, improvisation, teamwork and constant struggle. What leaves me in awe is that humans can be so talented and graceful to entertain the entire world by playing a nearly scoreless game with their feet.
YOU’RE THE STAR OF GROUNDHOG DAY, BUT YOU GET TO CHOOSE A DAY OUT OF YOUR LIFE TO RELIVE. WHAT’S YOUR DAY LIKE?
I think I’d rather not infinitely relive any day. That sounds like torture.
If I could instead relive a day for a few months, it'd be waking up slope-side to 3 feet of fresh powder at Beaver Creek.
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE FAMOUS FOR?
Doing the right thing.
WHAT DO YOU DO TO RELIEVE STRESS?
Grab the guitar, loop some rhythm tracks and solo the %$# out of it. An hour or two of this and I can work anything out.
WHERE IS YOUR FAVORITE PLACE TO EAT?
Next to a camp fire, but also I am a total sucker for the wings at Vine Street.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE OUTDOOR ACTIVITY?
Skiing, then camping, biking, backpacking and photography, all with the dogs.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?
Play music, soccer, mountain bike and hike with the dogs, take pictures, golf, hang out with good friends, hang in with good movies.
