I’m the guy who has to make the stuff that the guy below has to sell. If I can do it efficiently, we eat finer foods!
This is accomplished by creating a culture where each team member's talents flourish to the benefit of our customers, vendors, employees and bottom line.

N/A as I'm a capitalist -- we don't get choked up. Well….maybe when Gordon Gekko goes to jail.Boxers or Briefs?
Briefs -- in direct contrast to my communication style.

I’m still actively engaged in my worldwide quest to find the perfect French Onion Soup. So far, Montreal is in 1st place with Manhattan (of all places) a close 2nd. I remain open for any suggestions from you, dear reader. I’ll need the coordinates, of course. And probably plane tickets to Europe. Thanks in advance.
My high school nickname was “Scoop” because many of my classmates came to understand that I had this mysterious knack for knowing what questions would be on the test that day. This made me popular in high school for all the wrong reasons. (Don’t tell my kids that though…)If I Had a Superpower, It Would Be:
Put me down for flying. I know we have airplanes and all that but anything to avoid those nasty TSA and customs lines. But wait? Where to stow all my duty-free stuff? Right…put me down for an assistant that also has this same superpower.What Movie Scene Still Chokes You Up?
That would be any scene from any Tom Hanks movie where he tears up. Especially Forrest Gump. You know the scene. Don’t make me go there.Boxers or Briefs?
Boxers definitely. I was always a big Muhammad Ali fan.

To take over the world! Sorry, misplaced my meds again. Actually I would love to be a Tornado chaser or to be the next contestant on The Price is Right. Not at the same time though.
The family nickname for me is “Cliff Clavin” as I am a walking, talking encyclopedia of absolutely useless facts and trivial information. (For example: Did you know that the characters of Cliff & Norm were not even in the original script for the television series Cheers?) See!? There I go again! It’s like a tap that won’t shut off.If I Had a Superpower, It Would Be:
X-Ray vision. I mean….c’mon…I’m a guy!What Movie Scene Still Chokes You Up?
That scene in the movie “Say Anything” with John Cusack playing Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” on his boom box. I defy anyone born before 1980 not to remember that scene. (OK…anyone else other than you, Curt)Boxers or Briefs?
Commando. What...that wasn’t an option? OK then briefs, I guess. I like to keep things under control.

My ambition to become the oldest NHL rookie is still somewhat a work in progress. I understand that my chances are slim since my wife is already much better at hockey than me and she has yet to be drafted. But it’s always good to have goals.
I have a tendency to break almost everything I touch. So when your shipment arrives you may want to double check it.If I Had a Superpower, It Would Be:
Since I already break everything I touch, super human strength is not required. Therefore I would choose the ability to read minds. This would bring me a little closer to my eternal quest to better understand women as well as the Toronto Maple Leafs game plan for winning the Stanley Cup during my lifetime.What Movie Scene Still Chokes You Up?
Well….. I’m a huge marshmallow so this may be difficult to answer. A well done commercial has been known to get me on occasion (“It’s just a lamp.”). As for a movie, I would choose “P.S I Love You”, starting at about 10 minutes in right up until the closing credits.What Do You Do In Your Spare Time, That No One Knows About?
Shhh this can’t get out….. I have been known to play princesses and have tea parties with my girls. Surprisingly, I look great in a tiara! (Accompanying picture withheld by censors).Boxers or Briefs?
Why choose when you can have the best of both worlds with boxer briefs! Nobody loses.
