Q: What’s the funniest thing that’s happened to you at one of your jobs?
A: I met a professional Rubik’s Cube player once. I don’t know if that counts as anything. I used to work in a restaurant, and this guy just came in and he had a Rubik’s Cube with him. He said he was a professional Rubik’s Cube player and he could solve it in like 30 seconds, so I believed him.
Q: Speaking of restaurants, what’s the best one in the area?
A: Parker John’s is definitely the best. The brisket sandwich there with the BBQ sauce and maybe some macaroni and cheese on the side, that’s got to be the best thing in Sheboygan.
Q: If you were principal for a day, what would you do?
A: I’d probably give all the kids a day off, so that way I could have one, too. I mean, in all fairness.
Q: What’s the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into?
A: I really don’t get in that much trouble, but if I get in any trouble, I debate a lot in class and a lot of people don’t like that. I’m kind of just ‘that guy’ who likes to take on anybody in a debate.
Q: If you could be or do anything for a living, what would it be?
A: CEO all the way. I love business. If I could do anything, I’d be a CEO. Fortune 500.
Q: What is a hidden talent you have?
A: Sleeping, because no one sees me do it.
Q: What was the most embarrassing moment for you in any sport?
A: Probably the time when I took off from first base on a fly ball with one out and ran all the way to third before realizing I should probably head back.
Q: What scares you the most?
A: Failure. Definitely failure. I’m not one of those people who goes to like horror movies and gets scared. But I don’t like to lose. Losing, I just don’t like.
Q: Favorite movie?
A: Braveheart. William Wallace is like a hero of mine. I’ve got his movie poster up in my room. It’s a great movie.
Q: So how would you describe your bedroom?
A: The floor is always clean. Walls? It’s usually famous quotes, like Norman Rockwell art, World War II-related stuff or movies. And I also have a book shelf.
Q: What is the one TV show you always have to watch?
A: That’s kind of a toss-up: It’s either Seinfeld or The Office. I like either one of those.
Q: Can you name the best band or musician of all time?
A: I love Journey a lot. I like that kind of soft rock music. I like a lot of their songs. I’m kind of one of those people who likes older music and some of the newer stuff.
Q: What is the song you enjoy the most but are afraid to admit?
A: Probably “Into You” by Ariana Grande.
Q: If you won the lottery, what would you do?
A: I would invest. I’d pretty much put like 90% in investments and the rest in the bank.
Q: What’s the video game no one can beat you at?
A: No video game because I don’t play them that often.
Q: What school subject is your least favorite?
A: Math. Easily math. I like economics, I like personal finance stuff but I hate math. I can’t stand it.
Q: What celebrity do you have a crush on?
A: That’s a tough one. I’d have to say the younger Emma Watson, like early-20s Emma Watson.
Q: Favorite and least-favorite athlete?
A: Favorite athlete? Probably Jose Altuve. Least favorite? Steph Curry. I can’t stand the Warriors.
Q: What’s the longest you’ve been without a cell phone and how did you survive?
A: I’d say I’ve gone a couple years without a cell phone. I never really had a smart phone until at least my second semester of my sophomore year. I never really had a cell phone in junior high or about a year and a half of high school. I survived pretty easily. I’m not really a techie person and don’t use social media that much.
Q: What is the biggest pet peeve or superstition you have?
A: Emotional people is definitely my biggest pet peeve. Like super-emotional people who cry all the time? I just don’t like that.
