by ,

Jay Ellenberger

Hometown: Gleed, WA

Position: Slots / GM

Years at Swinomish Casino & Lodge: 9 years

Q: What’s the weirdest thing you’ve eaten?

A: Octopus I guess. But like bugs or worms? I ate a worm in junior high. I haven’t eaten a lot of strange stuff — I’m pretty finicky. Octopus is the only thing I can think of that I thought was weird, didn’t like and will never eat again.

Q: What’s your favorite vacation spot?

A: Probably Disneyland. It’s a fun place — it’s where I had my honeymoon. I’ve been there probably a dozen times. My goal in school was to work for Disney. I went through school for electronics to become an imagineer for Disney.

Q: What’s your favorite movie?

A: The Lost Boys.

Q: If you had an entire month off work, what would you do?

A: Probably travel. Go to Europe — do a European cruise.

Q: How do you enjoy a hot summer day?

A: In an air conditioned house (laughs). By the pool with a margarita.

Q: Do you have a life motto or code to live by?

A: Find something that you love to do and make a career out of it.

Q: What’s your favorite casino game?

A: Slots!
