Who’s The Boss?

He’s a cool dude, and I asked him these questions:
Q: What’s your favorite movie / TV show?
A: Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit (don’t hold it against him), Star Wars, Game of Thrones, all the fantasy stuff.
Q: What do you do on your free time?
A: I’m outdoorsy. I love getting outside. Going to the beach, snowboarding, taking photographs, and being with my family.
Q: Describe yourself in one word.
A: Problem-solver (technically two words, but he didn’t say he was a Direction-follower)

We look forward to meeting you!
