What is your favorite vacation you have ever taken? Why?: In March of 2017, my wife, son, and I went to Captiva Island, Florida with my parents. The day after we arrived, my wife (then girlfriend), and I both got food poisoning, leaving us both miserable for the next 2 days. The reason this is my favorite trip, is because at the end of that week on March 17th when we were both feeling better, our son, Eamon, assisted me in proposing to his mom. The rest they say, is history.

My bucket list (three things I want to do before I die):

  • Vacation in Greece
  • Attend a regular season baseball game at all 30 MLB stadiums
  • Hike the Appalachian Trail in its entirety

If you could trade places for a day with someone, who would it be and why?: Though no longer living, I would love to be Sir Edmund Hillary for a day. I would love to have been in his shoes on May 29, 1953, which is the day that he and his sherpa became the first mountain climbers to have been confirmed to reach the summit of Mount Everest.
