What's your Earliest Memory? Peeing on the doctor at birth. Truth. I asked my mom if it happened, she was pale by my recollection of it.
When And Where Were You Happiest? Usually doing something fun with my son. Otherwise, in front of the computer writing, pumping iron with my fellow gym rats or on a hike.
Name Your Ideal Dinner Party of 5? Corny as it may sound, my family. We five get along perfectly.
What did Your Parents Do? Assistant Vice President of a bank and communications handler for the NSA
How Do You Relax? Hitting pints with friends, hitting the gym, hitting the comics, hitting the keyboard with words that make me feel alive.
