What is your favorite lunch spot?
I travel a lot, and when I fly out of town, I have a ritual of going to King Kong in Broadway before I head to the airport. I always pick a random roll whenever I go there. Once I try all the rolls on the menu, I’ll let you know what one is my favorite.
If you could have any super power what would it be, and what would you use it for?
I would like to have a teleporting power, so I can see the world without all the time (or cost) it takes to travel.
If you could have any celebrity live next door to you who would it be and why?
It would be Richard Branson, and I would make him my mentor.
What are your top 3 things to do or see in Myrtle Beach?
-There are a few good hiking trails I like to take my dog (Dugan) on
-I like to take the boat out on The Waccamaw when I have time
-Go out to dinner with my friends, enjoying good food and good conversations
If you played hooky for a day, where would we find you?
Charleston… for sure!
When people ask you what you do for a living, what do you tell them?
I usually have the biggest smile on my face when I start talking about my job. After the huge grin, I proceed by saying “I coordinate boat shows for the largest sailboat manufacture in the world”… then I wait for their response.
What do you think the best invention is in the past 50 years?
Video Chat (communication in general) – allows family and friends to talk across the world in real time. It lets you be with the ones you love without being with them… if that makes sense.
Who was your first Facebook friend?
My freshman year of college roommates
If you couldn’t live in Myrtle Beach, where would you want to live?
In the US- Charleston or Miami- the quality of living in both those places is unlike anywhere else on the planet.
Outside the US- Paris, at least for one year- beautiful places and beautiful people
If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play the lead role as you?
Chris Evans- Just as long as there is good dialogue; or Brad Pitt; An older me would be Robert Downey Jr.
If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?
You Gotta Read This!
If you were written about in the newspaper, on the front page, what would the headline say?
You think you know, but you have no idea… (yeah I know it’s already been used)
