In China, on a 30-hour train ride. (TH)
What do you think Lancaster will be like in 10 years? Lancaster is awesomesauce and I only expect it to get better. As the cost of energy and transport rise, urban living is going to become more and more desirable. Suburbs are clunky and uncomfortable places for people to live. Cities are full of life and energy. 10 years is not a lot of time, but Lancaster is already ahead of the curve. I think it's going to get a lot of attention in the years to come.
What do you consider to be Lancaster City's greatest asset? Her people. Justin Bieber, of all people, has a lyric that goes, "The grass ain't always greener on the other side, it's greener where you water it." The people of Lancaster are investing in their community and it is making our city a wonderful place to live. Let's all take a moment to forget that I just quoted Justin Bieber.
Grabbing a bite in Lancaster with - $5, $10, $30 – Where (and what): $5 and I'll be at the Friendly Greek picking up a Salt, Pepper, Ketchup and Mayonnaise Cheesesteak. It's not on their menu anymore but it's their best creation and you can still ask for it. $10 and I'll get a beer to go with it. $30 and I'm at the Belvedere ordering a Grilled Ceasar with my meal and charging the rest to my credit card.
What are the best aspects of your job? Ironically, I live in the city and work in the country. One of the best aspects of my job is the 10-mile bicycle commute to Bareville. The accessibility of the countryside is another of Lancaster's many virtues.
Would you describe yourself as introverted or extroverted? Extroverted. At my core, I want to be left alone. But I can't stop appreciating the good people around me.
Coffee shop drink of choice: I'll have 16 ounces of your darkest coffee. Black.
What music are you listening to now? I'm listening to the Beat Blender channel on somafm.com. They won't stop with the mad hot tracks.
Best advice from your parents: Education is not about what you learn, it's about learning how to learn. They don't remember telling me that, but they did. Well, my dad did. On the back porch.
Finish this sentence: If there is one thing life has taught me it is... the more you live, the less you know.
What should they have taught you in school but didn't? I figured testing out at an early age and was able to ace my way through most of my academic career. They never told me that this knowledge was useless without the ability to manage relationships. I figured that one out on my own.
