Do you sing at them?

Not really sing. It's just more like murmur. I murmur songs about my dogs: Dennis and Colt.


What is your official job title?

Geo technical engineer. Which is kind of like a civil engineering but mainly soil.


How many bands have you played drums in?

Real bands, probably like six. This is not counting all the random attempts to get up and practice, and then it fizzles.

A lot. I think a lot of people can say the same.


More than the number of real bands?

Yes, absolutely.


If you were a football team, what would your mascot be?

Moist. We would be moist.


Would you be the moisties?

I don't know. It would just be a moist dude. Some guy that is awkwardly sweating.


If you could curse people, what would your curse involve?



Did you have an imaginary friend? Or do you have one now?

I'm going to decline to answer.


Do you subscribe tho the five second rule.

Yes, maybe more.


Favorite smell?



Does that mean you like mint chocolate chip?

Yep, that's actually my favorite ice cream.

Sheep would be pretty cool.


Pet peeves?

People who say, "guy." Like 'hey guy' or "what's up guy?'"That and smacking when you're eating. Any mouth noise while you are eating. That's the official answer, mouth noises while eating.


What were the first words that the aliens said to you when you were taken?

Oh shit. Waddup!

A pelican.

That's honestly just the first bird that I thought of.
