"Something that defines me is the U.S. Marine Corps Eagle Globe and Anchor. My time in the Marine Corps affects nearly every aspect of my life; as it did my father's life, and as it now does my son's."

What excites you about your work?

Striving for perfection; even knowing it is unachievable. I am excited about taking a disparate program and turning it into a cohesive design.

What is your favorite website?

I'll Google any topic at the drop of a hat. Including the origin of phrases such as "...at the drop of a hat."

What is the most out-of-the-box task you do at work?

As a former Marine, I generally work within 'the box'. However, it is a large box, heavily reinforced, impeccably clean, well defended and painted in camouflage.

Between being invisible or being able to fly, which would you choose and why?

Fly. No question. As a reformed introvert, I already know how to be invisible.

What is your favorite quote?

"Anyone who stops learning is old, whether twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing you can do is keep your mind young." - Mark Twain

What is the best compliment you have received?

Never play Trivial Pursuit against Matt.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I was never very interested in growing up.

What is your most unusual possession?

I have twelve, 3-foot long boxes containing thousands of comic books from the late 80's and early 90's.

What would the title of your autobiography be?

"Military Intelligence: Not Always an Oxymoron"
