Why did you join the BLM crew? What drew you to the business?

Join it? I started this shit, in an 8'x10' bedroom. Even did the billing myself. That was scary.

What is your favorite part of coming to BLM everyday?

The energy! Pulling together at all hours to make it happen for our partners. Friday afternoon laughs. I just love this team.

What do you most enjoy about being on the BLM team?

Working with so much home grown talent. We don’t hire experts, we grow them. That’s fun to see people thrive.

Who would you cast to play you in a movie about your life? What genre would it be?

John C. Reilly in a Spaghetti Western.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be? Why?

I would not want a superpower as I would abuse it, guaranteed.

What word would you add to the dictionary? What does it mean?

Snarkalina: A woman who continually spills food and smootz on her blouse.

What was your favorite cartoon growing up?

Casper the Friendly Ghost

How do they get the deer to cross at that yellow road sign?

They lay down a think bead of Tink’s Estrus “Doe In Heat” attractant and place bilaterally in a serpentinous fashion on a well-mowed swath leading to said crossing. The does follow the scent to fight and the bucks come lookin’ for da ladies!

What did you want to be when you grew up?

A Park Ranger, wildlife manager.

Where can we find you when you aren’t at BLM?

In the woods with a guitar.

You're stuck in the woods for three days, do you survive?

Hell yes, try 3 years!

If you weren’t working for BLM, what would you be doing?

I would love to own a 12 person lunch counter with one surly waitress and a bunch of grumpy old codgers that came in and bitched about the price of a Coney Island and fries. Just sayin’. That real America!
