I was born in Durham, NC, and moved to DFW when I was four years old, and I’ve been here ever since. I went to college at UNT and got my degree in advertising. I’m an Eagle Scout and have been big into the Boy Scouts for my entire life – I love being outdoors. The Boy Scouts are a bit of a tradition in our family; I have three uncles that are Eagle Scouts. I appreciate a good book, but with a young kid, I don’t have time for much reading right now.
I love being around a campfire. We just bought a house, and we have a fire pit in the backyard, and it’s my favorite thing to do at home.
All of Minnesota, I have a lot of family there. My parents were raised there, and I love it up there. The Summer months are great. I love camping and fishing up there. I’ll visit during the Winter on occasion, but I can only take – 20 degrees for about a week.
I think what I love most is taking an idea and physically creating it for the web to be viewed anywhere. I like taking multiple unique perspectives and turning them into something tangible that people can see.
I would be a brewer. My dad, brother and I have looked into it – there’s a lot of risk, but if I had to choose something else, that would be it.
Right now, I’m on “The Boys,” I’m not done with it yet, though. I’m really liking the angle of “evil Superman.”
“Tipping Point” by Malcolm Gladwell. He uses his perspective and personal stories to captivate the audience. After 10 pages, I was hooked.
Probably “How I Met Your Mother.” I think Marshall and I would get along really well; we’d definitely relate to each other.
I would say that I’m more of a listener, and definitely more introverted. I was far more introverted in high school, and I’ve had to break out of that as I’ve gotten older.
Mac n’ Cheese. Mac n’ Cheese is super pliable; you can customize it to be as rich as you’d like, and basically make it for all occasions.
Probably when I went to Sea Base with the Boy Scouts. We were swimming right next to our sailboat, and we were right next to a lot of barracuda, which was unintentional, but still fun.
Try not to make the same mistake twice.
I chose Schaefer because I felt like it had a great culture, good people and an environment where I could really grow and build something really exciting.
