The one thing I am passionate about...
I am extremely passionate about music and teaching. Teaching music allows me to share one of my loves in live with people everyday. I am also passionate about sports. I love baseball, football, and college basketball. The Cubs, Bears, Notre Dame football, and Indiana State Sycamores athletics are things that I pay close attention to.
I typically spend my leisure time
I love watching sports in my free time. If my team is playing, I am sure to be watching them. I love watching movies. I love to laugh at a good movie. Lifting weights is something that I have focused more on the last couple years. If there is not something good on tv, a good movie to watch, or good game on I will fire up the PS3 and have some fun.
The most influential person in my life has been
I look for someone who has a great personality. If you have a great personality in life you can accomplish so many things.
The first thing people notice about me
People notice the fact that I am not afraid to be myself at all times!
The last book I read and enjoyed
Do grad school textbooks count? Haha Even though I am a huge Bears fan, I read "Quiet Strength" by Tony Dungy. It was about his life and how he came to be a coach in the NFL. It was great to see him come from such humble begginings to where he is now and that he hasn't let it change his outlook on life.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family. We are extremely close.
- My friends. They are there for me all the time, no matter how far away they live or how long it has been since we saw each other.
- A successful career. I love my job and being able to have an impact on children everyday.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Because I am a bigger guy who voices my opinion at times, they don't often see my loyal and caring side at first.
