Working.

My friends describe me as …
Intrepid.

Snoop.

My favorite TV show is …
South Park. It’s one of the only shows that edifies while it offends, and allows me to laugh at all the chaos in everyday life.

My favorite movie is …
The Wiz. Diana Ross and Michael Jackson were unlike any other.

My favorite book is …
The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. It sets my imagination on fire.

My favorite food is …

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop?
It depends on the color. Each color has a different chemical makeup that minutely affects consistency.

Between iPhone or Android, I prefer … 
Android because of one simple word — OPEN.

Magnets?
Without magnetism, the world would literally fall apart.

What would you write in a message-in-a-bottle?
Matthew McConaughey survives.

What’s the appeal of a road less traveled?
The opportunity of finding treasure and using my Boy Scout skills to survive the rough patches.

That would break my mother’s heart. I refuse.

Who you gonna call?
I usually have a hard time making calls because my carrier is Sprint.

Money is not …
Freedom.

And you get to ask next week’s Payoff Personality, Jillian L., a question. What’s your question and how would you answer it?
Why aren’t your peanut butter sandwiches always toasted?
