What is your favorite training course and why?
ABC Modeling Using SAS Activity-Based Management. It is always interesting and valuable to help an organization find ways to improve its business without the need of laying people off.

Do you have any hobbies, favorite activities, or hidden talents?
I'm an amateur photographer. I like to shoot pictures of lightning and fireworks the most, but nature photography is also fun for me. I am also a closet furniture restorer. I take old beaten furniture and fix and refinish to make it look new.

What is your favorite movie, book, artist, or musician?
I have many favorite musicians. Right now I would say that Steven Wilson is my favorite. He has many projects he works with including, Porcupine Tree, Blackfield, No-Man and solo works. All of his music comes from deep inside him.
