Birthday? September 10th
Favorite Color? Argyle
Favorite Food? Smoked Ribs
Favorite Book? Steinbeck's East of Eden
Favorite Quote? Theodore Roosevelt's "Man in the Arena" (find our version of it here)
Favorite sport/team? Liverpool. Bruins. Cubs & Redsox. Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I like sports and I grew up in Vegas [remember how Las Vegans, without a local sports franchise can choose which team(s) to call their own? Hence the eclectic loyalty.]
Favorite Wall Quotes™ decal? Man in the Arena (find it here) or Roosevelt's "Rusting Out" - I have the largest size of that one in my office (find one design here and another version here).
Why? Because Theodore Roosevelt was awesome - his reading of the constitution was poor, but he was unapologetically manly: "See a problem? Solve it. No excuses. Put your man pants on and get it done."
How long have you been with the team? From the beginning.
What are you in charge of at Belvedere Designs? All the things [officially, he's the General Manager so, you know, there's a lot to it].
What's your favorite thing about working here? Creating. Taking an idea and turning it into a product - whether that be a new decal or a website re-vamp.
What do you do when you're not making crazy awesome Wall Quotes™ decals at Belvedere Designs? I make awesome food - cheese and treats and meats. I'm also writing a dissertation on James Madison's theories of representation for my PhD in American political theory. And I like Jeeping and hiking and riding my bike with my boys.
Anything else to add? After 3 years considering, I just bought burgundy corduroy pants. Ohlalala.
