Q: What have you learned from working at AK?
That working at AK is more than just a job. We are a family that works together to accomplish our goals as a team rather than individuals.
Q: What is playing in your car right now?
Elvis – In The ghetto.
Q: What is your best achievement?
What I am most proud of – building my new home. It took me 20 years but it was worth the wait.
Q: What is a hidden talent you have?
In the process of building my new home I learned that I have some designing qualities that I never knew I had.
Q: In 5 years you hope to…?
Still have my health. It’s something we all take for granted and I have seen way too many of my friends and family struggle at a very young age.
Q: What is the best advice you have been given?
Something my father always said, not just to me but to our entire community: “Treat others as you would want to be treated”
Q: What would you do with $1,000,000?
Pay my mother’s house off and buy her a new vehicle. She is always taking care of everyone else – I would love to take care of her for all the times she took care of me and so many others.
Q: If you could start your own business, what would it be?
Something to do with designing houses and organizing spaces (rooms, closets, etc.) for others.
Q: What is the best gift you have been given?
My memories of all the great times I have spent with family and friends. A gift that keeps on giving.
Q: If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to & what would you do?
I would travel back to my younger years before my father was diagnosed with cancer. Don’t care what I would do – to just be with him again in his healthy years would be all I could ask for.
Q: What is your favorite tradition you have?
Going up to my girlfriend’s cabin in the summer to get together with my old softball team – to catch up with all the girls, reminisce about old times, sing songs, pontoon, gamble, sit by the bonfire and laugh for 3 days straight! It’s an ab workout for sure!
Q: What is your favorite AK memory?
Serval years ago at an AK Christmas party – Al’s sister Kathy and I could not find Al’s dad (Al senior) anywhere….come to find out he was on the dance floor with all the ladies showing them how to do the Macarena. I never laughed so hard!
