What's your favorite fact about coffee?
My favorite fact about coffee is that, for all intents and purposes, the thing that most people drink coffee for (the caffeine) is essentially a naturally produced pesticide and I can't get enough of it.
What's your dream job?
Alarm clock tester?
What's your favorite pairing with coffee?
Croissant just out of the oven and 30 minutes of morning silence. Perfect.
Where are you to be found when not at Peace Coffee?
I can usually be found in front of a low wattage tweed amp annoying my neighbors or talking religion and politics at a coffee shop.
If you could have coffee with anyone, living or dead, who'd it be?
I'd have coffee with Ringo Starr, he seems like a hoot.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
My wife and I are looking at visiting the UK later on this year. I'd like to go because of the specific shades of green and because of the specific shades of grey.
If someone made you into a cartoon or comic character, what would that character's most prominent feature be?
My comic book character would be most recognizable by his furtive brow and spurious verbiage. That's right, I'd be The Prowling Scowler known for his locution solutions. Hold on, I might have a better one...nope... that's the best I can do right now.
What's your favorite fashion faux pas to commit?
I seem to have a knack for not wearing a button up shirt correctly. Tucked in, untucked, pop of color, what year is it? Eh, I'll just throw this double-breasted leather blazer on to cover up.my fashion mistakes.
What is the best bike ride you’ve ever taken & why?
I don't really do biking. A friend once compared watching me bike to watching someone attempt to balance a honey crisp apple on a pair of Ray-Bans. Spoiler alert: the apple bruises real easy.
Biking around the Amsterdam forest comes to mind. The whole morning was calm and misting as I biked around the lake and through small gardening communities. I managed to order coffee and a sandwich at a hidden lodge along the way and was visited by a hungry bird.
What music keeps you going while at work?
Currently, Daniel Lanois's last few pedal steel records have been getting me through long days, nineties alternative. bluegrass, and folk. All the metal.
