Fun Facts About Brian

  • Q. If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
    A.“I wish I never had to sleep; that my super was to never be tired or have to rest. I would use the extra time to do amazing things. Like teach myself new skills, learn new languages, travel, spend more time with people – overall be more successful in my efforts to make a positive impact on the world and live a full life.”
  • Q. What’s your weirdest / most-unique hobby?
    A. “My weirdest hobby is… not having a hobby. Growing up I never collected anything, traded anything, or obsessed over any one genre of entertainment. In the past few years, I’ve gotten into rebuilding classic cars, which I guess you could count as a hobby, except I sell them when I’m done. Does that count?”
  • Q. What’s your favorite meal?
    A. “Hamburgers. Without a doubt. Technically speaking… veggie burgers, as I don’t eat meat.”
