Tell us a little bit about yourself - your hobbies; interests; passions in life.

I am a very hard worker and competitor, but not a poor sport!


What other interests or hobbies do you have (other than Eliters of course)?

I am a seeker of knowledge. I enjoy reading, working on computers and all kinds of electronics and helping others.


How did you learn about Eliters and when did you join?

Found out that I could play dominoes online and just happened to be in the lobby and Concretcowboysbabe asked if anyone would be interested in sighing up for Eliters (also helped me join). (Thanks Mrs. H!)


How did you pick your Eliters' Name - does it have any special significance?

It was actually given to me and I ran with it!


Tell us something unique or interesting about yourself that we are unlikely to know?

I am active in my community in helping homeless and chemically dependent people turn their lives around to be self sufficient and productive members of society. Everyone deserves second chances. God forgives, so why can't we?


What makes Eliters special?

Eliters gives us the opportunity to play games with people from around the world just about anytime of day or night without the hassle of leaving your home!


What games do you play? Are there any other games you would like to give a try?

My favorites are dominoes and gin. I have been telling myself for a while that I will learn how to play all the games involved in the Olympics so that I can compete in that every month.


What is your absolute favorite game - and who taught you to play?

Is there even a need to ask? LOL when I was younger, I used to see my Dad & his friends play all the time


Do you currently hold any position in Eliters? Is there any particular position in which you might be interested?

Not at this time.


What is your proudest achievement in life?

To know that I can help turn other people's lives around for the better.


What is the most important thing for you in tournament play?

To stay focused and play the game all the way out. You never know what might happen.


If you had one wish; what would it be?

I wish for World peace and that everyone could get along. A little effort goes a long way.


If you could use one sentence to describe the way you feel about Eliters to a prospective new player; what would it be?

Don't be discouraged if you don't win - practice and keep on trying.


What is the most memorable experience that you have had as a TD or a player; online or at a live event?

Winning my first live and ELIC domino tourney was a big kick. I also play in live tourneys and am the current 2009 & 2010 champion.


What is the funniest thing that has happened to you since joining Eliters?

Are you kidding me? Eliters is FULL of comedians and I love it! Just what you need after a hard day on the job. :-)


What is the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you as a player or TD?

It takes an awful lot to embarrass me.


If you could be one person for a day; who would you be and why?

Me! To be truly comfortable with yourself should be satisfying enough, if you don't like or are unhappy with you...WORK ON IT!


You are given five minutes to evacuateyour house; the kids and pets are safe - which three items would you grab?

My bible, my dominoes and my car keys! LOL


How do you pass the time on your drive to and from work?

I listen to sports radio.


Name your three favorite movies:

Ummm, still thinking.


Do you have any particular heroes?

Palmer Peterson and my Dad


When I grow up I want to be just like:

Palmer Peterson. He is a man I met that will literally give you the skin off of his back if you were in need, even if he just met you 3 seconds ago! He is truly an awsome individual! Never says anything bad about ANYTHING & always see's positivity & good out of every situation.


Any last words for our readers?

If you are just a casual player, remember to always have fun and if you are a competitor, never take it personally. If you win or lose - don't be a hater. If you want to be the best, put the work in to achieve it.
