Q: What’s the weirdest thing you’ve eaten?
A: Probably octopus — at some random Chinese buffet somewhere in Tempe, Arizona.
Q: What’s your favorite vacation spot?
A: That’s a tough one. I’m going to go with Sandpoint, Idaho. It’s nice and warm in the summer. The kids like the lake. You can go out on a boat, wakeboard, surf, standup paddle board and hangout in the sun.
Q: What’s your favorite movie?
A: Braveheart — probably seen it at least 20 times.
Q: If you had an entire month off work, what would you do?
A: I would probably try to get in the best shape I could get in and do the most amount of work on my house as I possibly could get in.
Q: How do you enjoy a hot summer day?
A: Sitting in the backyard in the sun with the kids running around, and then grilling at the end of the day. I like grilling tri-tip, or anything normal like chicken and hamburgers. I like grilling tri-tip and salmon or halibut — fresh salmon or halibut is always good.
Q: Do you have a life motto or code to live by?
A: Always try to find the best version of myself every day.
Q: What’s your favorite casino game?
A: I like roulette because it’s easy!
