First job: Pizza Hut. I mostly washed dishes but also answered the phones and took orders. I used to tell people coupons are carry-out only because I didn’t know how to enter them into the system.

Personal hype song: \”Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow” by Alan Jackson. The line about the “crying of a steel guitar” has stuck with me, and I don’t listen to much music that doesn’t feature a steel guitar and/or fiddle.

Hobbies: Reading and listening to music. I mostly read nonfiction but proudly completed “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, plus “The Hobbit.” I mostly listen to classical country — Merle Haggard, Loretta Lynn, Johnny Cash, etc. — along with neotraditional staples like Alan Jackson and Randy Travis.
