What was your first job?
Delivering newspapers for the Redford Shopping News when I was in sixth or seventh grade. Getting up at 5AM and delivering papers on my bike in all types of weather was quite a character builder.
What is your favorite season?
Fall. I love the cool, crisp days, the smell of Autumn, the leaves, pumpkins, cider mills… all of it!
What is one of your favorite childhood memories?
Going to Camp Sancta Maria, a summer camp for boys in Gaylord, MI, for two weeks every summer was fabulous. Making new friends, participating in endless activities of all kinds, sleeping in a cabin - I couldn’t get enough of it!!
