I was born in the old St. Joseph Hospital in Tampa, FL. I am a fourth generation Tampa native and very proud of that fact.
I am 50 years old now. I have the great fortune to own the title of “dad”. To me, it is without question the greatest thing I have done in my life.
On January 30, 2010, DeeDee Brinkman and I were married in a small, but elegant gathering of friends and family.
I still work for an Internet Company that owns and operates many very popular web destinations. I am blessed with a terrific family and the type of friends that most people wish they had.
Most people who I haven’t seen in a while ask me two or three questions which brings them up to speed. Let me elaborate.
Stats: Married, with an 13 year old son, Jack. My mom and dad still live in Temple Terrace.
Soccer: Haven’t played but plan to start playing again once I drop 15 pounds and am convinced that I will not embarrass myself by expiring on a field. I have been coaching my son’s team for the past four years. I really missed the game. I am glad Jack has interest in sports, especially playing tennis and soccer.
Music: No, I rarely play guitar these days, but I never was really that good anyway. Dave is the man.
Likes: bar-b-que, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, DMB, and knowing that if I do a really good job – I will enjoy a firm congratulatory slap on the butt. Nice job!
Dislikes: missing the quality television programming that occurs when I am working
I am best known for: My fast food tirades. (Why is it I can find the only fast food chain within 100 miles that has a broken milk shake machine?)
Most comical phobia: Public restrooms (I can’t seem to find my comfort zone.)
People often say I remind them of: Matt Lauer ( I don’t see it, but….. )
Worst thing I ever paid good money for: the Circus (Clowns scare me.)
People would be surprised to know that I: rarely wear underwear and when I do it’s something unusual (and even then I prefer a low-rise bikini…mesh if possible).
Celebrity Dream Date: Does Jessica Rabbit count?
Favorite Holiday: Festivus
Least ideal vacation spot: Walt Disney World (I can’t get that “Small World” song out of my head)
Favorite word: MORON
Least favorite word: MORON
If I had a time machine, here’s where I’d go: 5 years in the future so I could enjoy uncommon wealth immediately instead of waiting
Ultimate goal in life: looking good in a speedo.
Lastly, sum yourself up in a haiku (or something resembling a haiku):
Shackled and chained
By my own inefficiencies
I can’t finish this….
