Everyone has a secret talent. What's yours?

I love the practices of traditional woodworking, building things purely with hand tools.

Describe your favorite childhood memory.

Back in elementary and middle school, my dad, brother, and I would go on an annual camping and float trip on the Niangua River with a bunch of our friends and their dads. It was a weekend I looked forward to every year.

Name your biggest fear.

Even though I grew up swimming competitively, I've always had a bit of an irrational fear of open water.
