    *City/State where you live*
    Memphis, Tennessee

    *Current place of employment*
    Dawson's Printing, Inc.

    *Job Title*
    Electronic Prepress Technician

    *Hometown City/State*
    Memphis, Tennessee

    *Favorite Musician/Band*
    Used to listen a lot to all types of music, but mostly listen to WCRV
    640 AM Christian talk radio nowadays. That's not to say I don't still
    like to listen to some oldies now and then, but I just really don't
    like much of the music coming out these days.

    *Favorite activity outside of work*
    Watching movies and favorite TV shows and relaxing my brain.

    *Store you would max your credit card at*
    Although I have pretty much stopped using my credit card, if someone
    else paid the bill, I'd max it out at the Apple Store.

    *Something you must do or accomplish before you die*
    Don't really have that much ambition. I've done about all I want to
    do. Can't really think of anything right now.

    *Other occupation you would like to try*
    I would like to go back to being an artist. I haven't done any artwork
    in probably half my life, but for the first half of life I loved
    drawing and by age fifteen I really could draw well, and even did a
    first painting that I thought turned out well. I just figure I
    couldn't make consistent money at it so I haven't done anything about
    it since.
    Nowadays, although I'm not mechanically-inclined like my dad is, I'm
    interested in alternative energy and would love to be able to build my
    own generator for my house and hydrogen-on-demand capability and put
    it into my car. If I had that type of knowledge, I'd be able to make
    money retro-fitting other people's cars and homes, or dead because I
    knew too much.

    *First Car*
    That's hard to say. My dad bought, fixed, and sold a few cars to build
    up money to get a car for me to drive as my first car. A Toyota
    Corolla that I wrecked the first day out of school on summer break in
    the 11th grade. Hit some trees (the third or fourth one stopped me).
    Hit a DO NOT ENTER sign (that I had to pay for), jumped over a street,
    over a lady's car, over a stop sign, and when I came out of the wreck
    with my buddy, she said "You shouldn't be alive!". Well, my dad tied
    the car's "A" frame between a tree and his truck and straightened the
    "A" frame back out, and from then on I called that Corolla "Toyota
    SR5-747" because I flew in that car, the radio was still playing after
    the wreck, and I got to drive that tank for some more years after
    that. Rugged piece of machinery.

    *Personal Quote*
    I used to have one: Life's not hard. It's not accepting the facts of
    life that make it hard.
    But that was before I grew up and saw that life was hard no matter if
    you accept things as they are or not. Of course, accepting the facts
    does make it easier.

    *Favorite Movie*
    1. The Gospel of John
    2. The Ultimate Gift
    3. The Notebook

    *Family/Children?*
    Married to my wife Dawn for the last 6.5 years. Been together for 11.5 years.

    *Favorite Vacation spot*
    Haven't been yet, but Amsterdam or Jamaica. I have been to Florida
    multiple times and also been to the Bahamas. Great relaxing time.

    Thanks Don!
