What’s your favorite vacation spot?
Anywhere on the ocean where it’s warm enough to surf. Lake Michigan has its limitations.
What was your very first job?
Painting curbs and fire hydrants for the City when I was 15. It provided me with a sense of civic responsibility and still helps me avoid parking tickets. Also, you can’t beat working outside.
What’s one thing someone would be surprised to know about you?
I have been involved in theatre for most of my life.
