  • Favorite item of clothing in my closet: My suit: clean and sophisticated, a suit tells a lot about a man.


  • The nickname my friends have for me is: BillyBlackSocks: this name was awarded to me during freshman football, I was the smallest most experienced player, because I had played Pop Warner pre-high school and new how to hit!! I wore long black socks to tryouts, and coach said I reminded him of Billy White Shoes Johnson in the NFL.


  • Favorite pair of shoes are: Nike Classics: because they’re comfortable, multi use, and have some nostalgic effect on people who know about there history.


  • When I wake up in the morning, I always do these three things: Take a shower, Dress to impress, Eggs and Bacon. This is my morning routine; I feel like if I don’t wake up and do the same set, I feel lost or unproductive the whole day. Good days start right out of bed.
  • If I could pick two people to have dinner with, dead or alive, they would be:  My Dad: because I would want to know what heaven was like. Secondly, my mother: to let her know how special she is to me.


  • My favorite thing to do on a Friday night is: Go see the next Movie: I spent all of 2011-12-14 going to premier weekend at the movies. I love a good story, and if I can get a few explosions and wonder, then it’s worth my admission ticket.


  • The best compliment I’ve ever received was:  A batch of freshly Baked cookies and a giants card that said “thank you for being so nice and helping everyone find their books, bookstore guy”


  • I’m addicted to: Movies


  • My most embarrassing moment is: Ping Pong Table 2009: we had a huge party, things got a little wild, there were libations, and I somehow I ran, and slid across a Ping Pong table onto the floor.


  • The most important lesson in life I’ve learned is: Keep on Going: history is a great teach, but not so much as hindsight. When your going through struggles and it seems that they won’t ever end, you remember the struggles of the past and just “keep on going” cause you got through it before.


  • My favorite thing about my job is: I get to save lives: I help people with their life insurance and investments. Life insurance is a safe guard for families who want the people they leave behind to have the same quality of life if they were not there.


  • The best gift I’ve ever received was: Money to finish college: we ran out of funds to even finish my first year, and receiving additional money to make it through: not only 1 year, but also all 4.


  • My favorite store is: BROOKS BROTHERS
