Q: How does it feel to win this award?

A: I was really honored because I’m honestly a shy and humble guy in a lot of ways and I was really humbled and touched. I just try to do my job as well as I can. I was just shocked.

Q: What is your favorite part about working for BDS?

A: Well, I just really like my job in general. I don’t really have one favorite part since I like it all. I enjoy keeping up with the maintenance, working with the employees, and making sure that everything is in order. Working in Facilities in general is what I really like to do.

Q: Travel by train, plane or car?

A: Car. I love doing all the driving myself and being able to stop where I want and admire my surroundings.

Q: If there was a movie produced about your life, who would play you, and why?

A: Morgan Freeman because I love his voice!

Q: Who’s the person in your life that you admire most? Why?

A: Tony Dungy. He was a football coach for the Indianapolis Colts and he’s a very positive person. He never has anything bad to say about anyone and is always upbeat; he really inspires me.

Q: If you could sing one song on American Idol, what would it be?

A: I do love to sing and if I could sing one song on American Idol I would probably sing… Amazing Grace. Wait, never mind, I would sing Three Times a Lady by Lionel Richie.

Q: Do you have a hobby?

A: Yes, I do! I love to garden. I am currently growing some Plumerias in my garden, which is a kind of tree that you can find in Hawaii.
