How long have you been a camper here at Net Conversion?

If someone wrote a book about you, what would it be called?
Walk Don’t Run by Matthew Walker
What’s your favorite memory at Net Conversion?
Within my first month, people started a betting pool and threw down money to see two fellow campers chug maple syrup. The stakes got up to $250. Both contestants went home an hour later because they felt sick.
(PSA: Don’t do this at home)
Mountains or beach?
What about mountains on the beach… North Carolina or California. Mountains, if I can only pick one.
If you were a ghost, how would you haunt people?
I don’t know if I would haunt anyone. I’ve had paranormal experiences myself and wouldn’t wanna do that to anyone. I don’t love the paranormal stuff. Maybe I’d tidy up their house for them to be nice.
Is cereal soup?
What makes soup, soup? It doesn’t have a broth, so no. Cereal is cereal.
What hobbies do you have outside of work?
Sports – Basketball, Golf, and Volleyball. I love hiking, there’s not much in Florida, but I enjoyed it in Tennessee. I really enjoy music and themed dinner parties with my wife and our friends.
Would you rather be without elbows or knees?
Knees, I have bad knees – actually, no, without elbows. It would be harder without knees.
What are you interested in trying for the first time?
I want to get into woodworking and customizing furniture. That or write music.
What’s your favorite memory?
My favorite memory is getting married. We married in Sydonie Mansion in Mount Dora on December 11th, 2021. Kelly’s ice cream was catered, and everyone was slamming down ice cream cones.
What TV show do you turn on when you just want to zone out?
How I met your mother is a favorite. I’m working through New Girl before it goes off Netflix. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and The Office are both good ones too.
What is your most-used emoji?
The crying laughing emoji (😂), I have some really funny friends
Chocolate or Vanilla?
Vanilla – you can add more things to it. Not all chocolate tastes the same to me, and I don’t like rich chocolate.
What is your favorite food?
All types of Italian food. Anything my wife makes, especially her Peanut Thai Noodles. So either Italian or Thai.
Anything else you want readers to know?
Some advice, ask more questions than you answer. Do things without the expectation of receiving recognition or a reward. And in marriage, never stop dating your spouse.
