Stay Awhile and Listen:
You list Ames, Iowa as well as Madison, Wisconsin as where you work. What’s up with that?
I work in both Ames, Iowa and Madison, Wisconsin. My current residence is in Iowa, but I travel to Wisconsin a fair amount to visit family and friends. I love the Madison area, and so I am pleased to work there as well as Iowa.
What is your favorite place to visit?
I love Colorado. I look forward to one day buying a small cabin in the woods and retiring to the peace and beauty that is the Rockies!
Do you like cats or dogs?
Dogs all the way, but I’ll put up with cats.
Where do you call home?
I have moved so much, I call a lot of places home. I was born in Wisconsin. I have lived in several states in my short time spent on the Pale Blue Dot. I miss living in Belding, Michigan. I’d move back to Atlanta, Georgia in a heartbeat. Did I mention I really want to live in Colorado?
Which do you prefer, pancakes or waffles?
Waffles. They are so crunchy and yummy!
Favorite way to spend a rainy day?
I am a sucker for terrible B-Movies. I can, and I do, spend a whole day just browsing and watching two-star movies on Amazon or Netflix. If it is a terrible horror movie….oh man, that is like finding a great prize at the bottom of the Cracker Jack box! It really makes you appreciate a good movie! Sometimes I’ll even watch terrible horror movies while I play video games, because I also love to drift away in various virtual worlds!
So what is your favorite movie genre?
I am a sucker for horror movies. I also really enjoy sci-fi movies.
What is your favorite place to travel to?
I am blessed in the fact that I have had the opportunity to travel to many places. Germany was pretty fun. All the small towns, castles, and history made that an unbelievable trip. However, my favorite place to travel to is St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. It might be warm and the mosquitoes are atrocious, but swimming in the various bays, the views, and the calmness that comes over me of being there is just so darned good.
List one of your biggest accomplishments?
Marrying the woman who made a random comment about my Nintendo DS while we were on a flight from Georgia to Illinois. Best flight ever 😉
What is your biggest dream?
I often dream that we will one day make space travel a thing that anyone can do. While I doubt it’ll happen in my lifetime, I do wish I could see the rings of Saturn, or gaze upon the countless stars and galaxies out in the black.
Do you offer video content online?
I do. I stream on Twitch.TV. While my streams are mostly photo editing focused, you might catch me streaming a video game from time to time as well.
