“Sometimes my head is in the clouds and my view is phenomenal; then somehow a bug splats on my windshield at more than a mile high, and I wonder, ‘What in the world is a bug doing at this altitude? ’ ”
 

What has been your favorite project as DBR?
All of them. No project is ever as "straight-foward" as I think it will be, making them all interesting. 

How did you get started with your activity/hobby? What do you enjoy about this activity/hobby?
I was raised flying planes, rebuilding cars, and building and renovating houses. I never had any formal schooling, with exception to needing a pilot’s license, to do any of these hobbies, so they all feel natural and unforced.

If you were to write a book about yourself, what would you name it?
How to Have Fun... For Dummies

What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I am the first born American in my family.

What is your favorite quote?
"Listen, I’m a politician, which means I’m a cheat and liar, but that also means I keep my options open.” - Movie, The Hunt for Red October.

What is on your bucket list?
To visit the most remote island chains in the world, dive the Great Barrier Reef, visit Antarctica, and fly around the world in a single direction on a single vacation.
