What have you been up to lately?
In 2018 I decided to read every pulitzer-prize winning biography of American presidents. So far I've read Truman's, Adams', and Washington's. Currently I'm reading Jackson's, and Lincoln's is up next.
What is your fantasy job?
Is it cheating to say this one? I love learning, and by extension sharing what I know. My ideal retirement is one spent teaching, perhaps history or U.S. government in a high school.
What are your wardrobe constants?
If it is fashionable, someone else bought it for me. Although like President George H. W. Bush, I am a fan of 'fun' socks. When I'm not at work, you can find me in a flannel shirt and jeans.
What is the catchphrase you use the most?
In the wise words of Jocko Willink, "Get after it".
Most humbling moment (lately)?
Failing Ranger school.
