One word to describe your work environment: Demanding

Rules to live by in business: I would use traits rather than rules…Communication, responsiveness, approachability, follow through, quality control, ethics, and mentoring of others.

Favorite book or author: Stephen King

Last song/album that you purchased/downloaded? With Pandora and Spotify, I have not purchased an album and downloaded anything in over 10 years…I am a heavy metal and modern rock kind of guy.

If you could invite one person to dinner (living or dead, but not related to you) who would it be and where would you go? I would invite every FBI director past and present and place them on a fool proof lie detector test. Let’s get everything out in the open for the past 112 years, everything. I’d have it right at my house and recorded.
