Current TV Show?

My current tv show is Westworld. I’ve watched Season 1 and found it fascinating. I really hope Season 2 continues to be as smart and entertaining. 

Weirdest food you ever ate?

When I was in Thailand I tried scorpion. It tasted like burnt bacon. Not too bad.

Can you roll your own cigarettes?

Not tobacco cigarettes... but yes, I roll well. 

Morning person or night owl?

I used to be a night owl. My hours were 11:00AM until 2AM. Not anymore. Since my son was born 8 months ago I’m now a morning person. I’m up at 6:30AM or 7AM and I’m in bed by 11PM.

Digital or by hand?

By hand. My wife bought me an iPad Pro and pencil for my birthday. I tried drawing on it for quite a while. In the end I went back to paper. I enjoyed the feel of paper, plus the light from the screen drained my energy and gave me a headache after a while.
