1. Describe yourself as if you were writing a personals ad.
I’m a pretty nice guy, I care about other people. I’m Christian, I believe in Jesus as the Lord and Savior. I contribute what little money I have to causes to help people. I don’t flip people off on the freeway. Not that I haven’t in the past, but I don’t do it anymore. I think that I’m just a regular person. I don’t see any big deal.
2. If you had two tickets to paradise, where would you go and who would you take?
I would go to Hawaii and I would take my dental hygienist Janice.
3. Who plays you in the movie?
4. Who do you go to for advice?
I go to God for advice, the spirit. I believe the spirit’s in me and of course in the world and I ask a lot of questions for guidance.
5. What makes you cry?
Sometimes I cry about mistakes I’ve made in the past and bad decisions I’ve made. I wouldn’t say there are a lot of them. Films occasionally, something touching in a movie can make me cry. I think that’s one of the beautiful things about movies and television, that they can affect someone to that degree.
