A.K.A. Shorty. (I was 5’2”, 98lbs in 9th grade. Now, 1 ft, and 100 lbs later...)


“It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts.”

What makes you, YOU?

  • Close family and childhood friends — without having strong values and integrity, I wouldn’t have them.
  • Work ethic — To support their families, my dad dropped out of school after 6th grade, my mom after 11th. They made sure I graduated college.
  • The process of concept, writing and then directing TV spots — the opportunity to bring the “idea” to life.
  • Developed names for multiple Disney theme park and hotel locations.
  • Sports. The teamwork, the relationships, the drive, the competition, the wins, the losses — for me, it’s all been a microcosm of life.

Things that make you tick...

  • Family time, all the time.
  • Coaching youth sports.
  • Movies
  • Anything playing or relating to Basketball.
  • 72° weather

Pet peeves, dislikes, and anything else wrong with everything?

  • Disrespectful people.
  • Sour cream.
  • Guys compelled to release public snot rockets.
  • Not getting the “wave” when I let another driver cut in.
  • My declining jumping ability.

Your midnight shift superhero identity?

  • YOUTHENIZER! He actually makes people younger. Or the MEXECUTIONER — He destroys all Mexican food.

What is your shaman power animal?

  • My dog, Chili — I like his owners.

Something important you need to let the world know?

  • Cattle are the only mammals that pee backwards (careful how you approach them when ‘cattle tipping.’)

Fairly useless but unique skill or trick?

  • Marginal juggler.

Goofy and guilty pleasure of yours?

  • Moonwalking.
