What was your first job?
Vacuumer at Johnny’s Car Wash on Beechmont/Pizza Chef at Pomodori’s in Montgomery. I can’t recall which was first, but both were miserable.

Where/how did you meet your significant other?
I met my wife, Jen, at a seedy Mexican restaurant called “MadMex” (which no longer exists) in Columbus after a law school final when we were both at Ohio State. She was writing a paper and I was drinking margaritas. Pretty telling, in hindsight.

What is your favorite book?
I can’t pick just one: Matterhorn by Karl Marlantes or Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer.

What is the simplest thing you never learned to do?
For the life of me, I cannot shuffle a deck of cards.
