Tell us a little bit about yourself
I basically spend all of my free time fishing. I fish in bass tournaments almost every weekend all year round. I'm also a huge sports fan. I'll watch just about any sport that's on and I'm occasionally guilty of watching the same SportsCenter episode three time in a row.
How did you learn about SEAC?
Our CFO, Cassie Carney, is a friend of the family.
What aspect of your role are you most looking forward to?
I am looking forward to becoming a vital employee within the company. I am looking forward to making a difference each and every day.
What would people never guess you do in your free time?
Competitive Bass Fishing. Basically, if it's not a work day, you'll find me on a boat with a line in the water.
Before working at SAEC, what was the most unusual or interesting job you've ever had?
Assistant Manager at a Golf Course
What's your all-time favorite movie? TV Show?
TV Show - The Office / Movie - Law Abiding Citizen
What is a random fact that most may not know about you?
I wrestled the 62 pound weight class in 7th grade
Describe what you were like at 10 years old
I was a fishing fool at ten years old. I would beg my dad to take me just about every day. When I wasn't fishing I would sit on the couch and watch whatever sports game was on the TV. If there wasn't a game on you would find me watching SportsCenter over and over again. I guess you could say I haven't changed much!
What's your nickname?
If given a chance, who would you like to be for a day?
Jordan Lee (up and coming bass fishing phenom) but also Bill Gates, because I'd buy everything I wanted that day and ship it to my house so it'd be there waiting for me when I had to return to real life.
If you could witness any historical event, what would you want to see?
I would want to witness the moon landing... and be on the ship to step foot on it with them.
What book did you last read?
Business ethics book for one of my final classes last semester... I wouldn't recommend it
What children's character can you relate with most and why?
Probably Jerry from Tom & Jerry. He was a clever little fella and no one could ever stop him. I also just remember that being my favorite cartoon growing up.
What have you always wanted to try but never have?
Snowboarding in the mountains
Where is the best place you have traveled to and why?
Lake Fork, Texas. It is the big bass capital of the country.
What is the weirdest thing you have on your desk?
A telecom outlet with two wires coming out of it. Terry (Parnell) gave it to me for "motivation" while I was doing my first takeoff.
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
Learn how to teleport... you could take some sweet vacations on the weekends if you didn't have travel time involved!
What is your all-time favorite restaurant?
Popeye's Chophouse in St. Rose, IL
