EDUCATION Florida Southern College (BS)
SOMETHING SURPRISING I love to karaoke, so much so that my neighbors bought me a karaoke machine so that I can entertain them or give them something to laugh at during neighborhood gatherings.
NEW HOBBY I’m not really sure what you call it, but it involves making funny faces, funny noises and acting childish. I picked up this new hobby shortly after my first grandchild, Ben, was born.
