HOMETOWN:   Wolf Lake, IL (Population 300... counting dogs & cats)

CAREER HISTORY:   When I was in high school, my friend’s dad owned a radio station. I begged him for a job and thinking it would be awkward to reject his son’s friend, he hired me.  Since then I’ve worked in Dayton, Tulsa, St. Louis, Sacramento, Kansas City, and now Indianapolis.

FAVORITE LIVE MUSIC VENUE:   Any small intimate venue where I can sit and be sung to, like a coffee shop.  Here in town I love the Circle Theatre and Symphony on the Prairie in the summertime!

FAVORITE CONCERT I’VE EVER BEEN TO:   Garth Brooks, The Eagles, or Fleetwood Mac. Tought to decide between those 3.  

MOVIES:   Groundhog Day is my favorite movie of all time. I also never met a documentary I didn’t like. I recently got a great one from the library about asparagus farming. If you check it out (you know you want to), let me know what you think!

TELEVISION:   Curb Your Enthusiasm is the funniest show that’s ever been on television. There you have it.  The matter is settled.  Other than that... any "whodunnit" murder show (Dateline, 48 Hours, etc), and PBS Frontline (see previous note about my love of documentaries).

WEBSITES TO VISIT:   You mean aside from b1057.com? I’m semi addicted to Facebook and Twitter. The things people put out there for public consumption greatly amuses me.

LITTLE KNOWN FACT ABOUT ME:  I was named after John Lennon’s son Sean, and I once ran for political office (and lost).

FAVORITE LOCAL RESTAURANTS:  Marrow, Zydeco, Iozzos, Napolese.. I could go on. Seriously. That’s like asking a mother to name her favorite child. 

FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORK:  Getting up in the middle of the night... oh wait, I thought you said “least” favorite thing.

TYPICAL BREAKFAST:   I don't usually eat breakfast (don't judge me).

FAVORITE ROADTRIP FROM INDY:   Chicago. A show at 2nd City + dinner at a fun trendy spot = a great weekend!

LIKE TO COOK?  Yeah... I’m trying to master the art of BBQ on my smoker (low and slow baby... low and slow).

PETS: A golden doodle rescue named Brady.

THREE OF MY EVERYDAY ESSENTIALS:  Coffee, diet pop sweetened with stevia, water with organic lemon juice  (I’m very beverage centric).

THREE THINGS TO DO BEFORE I DIE:  1) Go the airport with no destination in mind and just buy a ticket to a random place on the spot. 2) See the Pacers win an NBA championship. 3) Learn how to change a tire (I seriously don’t know how, so if you see me on the side of 465... please stop and help).

We get high marks for our food scene, sports, our welcoming nature, and museums... like the IMA and even the Conrad Hotel lobby (which has an orginal Picasso and Warhol). Apparently people think we're bad drivers. We got bad marks there. See the full rankings here.
