Any hobbies people are surprised to hear you have?
With three young children, my “hobbies” have become whatever my kids are in to.  However, before kids, I owned a jet ski.  I bartended each summer during college at a restaurant on the water, and every time I worked the day shift, O would drive my jet ski to and from work. I don’t own the jet ski any more, but still like to tear it up on the ocean when given the opportunity.

Vacation spots you recommend?
My family has a home on Cape Cod in Massachusetts, and I often refer to this as my “happy place”.  The air is fresh, cell phones don’t work well, and the Cape is the most relaxing place in the world for me.  I was spoiled to live there each summer until I was 24.  Living in NJ now, I try to get there 2-3 weeks each summer, so my kids can have the same experience I had.

Most interesting company you have worked with?   As a field examiner, our firm has experience in just about any industry, and I’ve been fortunate enough to perform exams on some very interesting companies.   One “experience” I had was performing a field exam on a Company that purchases, but also manufactured/processed, animal hides. The facility was primarily an A/R line, but the Bank had a blanket lien on all assets, including inventory, as such, inventory testing was requested.  This included an inventory test count in the Company’s processing facility/warehouse.  In July.  In Texas.  The smell was…Well, I’ll let you all use your imagination.

Favorite dish to cook?
I guess this could also be a hobby of mine.  I love to cook and try to cook 4-5 nights a week for the family. Grilling is a given from about March through November, however when I’m inside, I can make a five-star Chicken Francaise that my family loves and is a frequent “go-to” meal.

See any good concerts or entertainment events lately?
Again, not to keep bringing up the kids, but the last concert I saw was Kidz Bop Live last summer.  But I am a huge sports fan and do frequent many sporting events.  Work-travel has assisted, and I’ve been to 26 baseball stadiums throughout the country.  Despite living in NJ, I grew up outside Boston, and am a huge Red Sox, Patriots and Celtics fan.  I’ve passed this affinity for Boston teams onto my seven-year-old son, and we made our first “road-trip” to Buffalo (and Niagara Falls) last fall to see the Bills-Patriots.
