Five Things You Didn't Know About Me

I’ve been tagged by Nick Hodges and Dan Miser so I guess it’s my turn…

  1. I’m the only Delphi R&D team member into weight lifting. I work out at Dave Draper’s World Gym here in Scott’s Valley.
  2. I wound up on the University of Maine track team after one of the coaches approached me while I was fooling around dunking a basketball in the field house one day. I came within 1/4″ of the UMaine high jump record (at the time) of 6′ 10 1/4″.
  3. I grew up in Maine in the snow yet I’ve never been downhill skiing. Instead, I played hockey. Go Black Bears!
  4. I gave blood for the first time last year through the Stanford Blood Center, something I now plan to do regularly. My blood type is A negative.
  5. I come from a family of five, four of whom are left handed including me.

I think pretty much everyone I know at who blogs has either already written a similar post or has been tagged so I guess I’m going to break the chain.
