1. Tell us a little bit about yourself - your hobbies, interests, passions in life.
My Passion is my son. He is the greatest thing that has happened to me in my life. I have a very active life - I play competitive darts and horseshoes. I like to go camping and fishing. I make the most out of life and live it to the fullest.
2. What other interests or hobbies do you have (other than Eliters of course)?
See above lol!
How did you learn about Eliters and when did you join?
I learned about Eliters when I was part of Leaga. I joined in 2008 and I have been having a great time since.
How did you pick your Eliters' Name - does it have any special significance?
I have probably had more names than I can remember for various reasons but this name I chose because I am a TD in euchreP. While I am at it - remember to change your password often because I had my e-mail hacked and that is one of the reasons I had to change names.
Tell us something unique or interesting about yourself that we are unlikely to know?
Well am a former United States Marine. I served proudly and do not regret a moment of my service. On this same note if you meet any veteran or military personel please remember to say thank you. The military does not pay well, but the thank yous are priceless!
What makes Eliters special?
Eliters is great for many reasons, but my favorite is getting to know new people and challenge yourself against others.
What games do you play? Are there any other games you would like to give a try?
I play almost everything. I think if there was one game I would like to learn it would be russian roulette, but I definitely would not want to lose LOL.
Editors note - fortunately, Eliters will never offer Russian Roulette as an option.
What is your absolute favorite game - and who taught you to play?
My favorite game is euchre hands down. I was taught the game when I was like 7 or 8. My grandpa taught me to play, and as I got older he taught me his strategy. You see the trick is………
9. Do you currently hold any position in Eliters? Is there any particular position in which you might be interested?
I am a GL in euchreP, and an SFTD. I think the next position I want is President of Eliters. Hoping Issa is going to offer it to me soon. LOL
What is your proudest achievement in life?
When my son was born. Other than that I would have to say the day I graduated from boot camp.
What is the most important thing for you in tournament play?
The most important thing to me is fair and nice play. I think if we all are nice then we all have a good time.
12. If you could offer one suggestion to improve Eliters, what would it be?
I think the best thing Eliters could do to improve would be to pay me to play so I could be on all the time LOL.
Editors comment: good luck with that idea lol.
If you had one wish what would it be?
For all my friends and family to live a long and healthy life.
If you could use one sentence to describe the way you feel about Eliters, to a prospective new player, what would it be?
I love Eliters!!!!!
15. What is the most memorable experience that you have had as a TD or a player, online or at a live event.
Probably my multiple DECA wins.
16. What is the funniest thing that has happened to you since joining Eliters.
The funniest thing is that I am still somewhat sane LOL.
What is the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you as a player or TD?
I fell asleep in the middle of a game, lol, I know it sounds bad but I was tired… I said I was disconnected and could not get back and I apologized for it.
If you could be one person for a day, who would you be and why?
Nicklas Lidstrom hands down, It would be great to play for the Detroit Red Wings for one day.
19. You are given five minutes to evacuate your house, the kids and pets are safe - which three items would you grab?
Pictures of my son, car key and phone to call for the reason I had to leave,
How do you pass the time on your drive to and from work?
Think! No music just silence...
Name your three favorite movies:
That’s just unfair! OK first is easy Monty Pythons Holy Grail, second would be Casino, and third Godfather
Do you have any particular heroes?
Gordie Howe the greatest hockey player in history!
What is your guiltiest pleasure?
I would say cooking great tasting food, not exactly good for me, but who could resist?
When I grow up I want to be just like:
My grandpa, God rest his soul. That's all I have to say about that...
Any last words for our readers?
Hope to see you in the trenches and can not wait to win against you soon.
