Let’s get to know Scott…

What’s your favorite isle in the grocery store?

My favorite isle definitely has to be the snack food isle. There are so many tasty things in that isle. I’m a big fan of chips and other snacks foods like gold fish and pretzels (even if they aren’t so good for you).

What’s your biggest pet peeve?

My biggest pet peeve has to be messy cars. I’m pretty particular when it comes to my car so when I get into someone else’s car and they have trash or things everywhere it really bugs me.

What’s an ability you wish you had?

I would definitely like to be able to live forever. I’m a big history fan so I would just love to see humanity progress and see what happens in the future. Plus, I think it would be so cool to have no expiration date. It would be a pretty big weight off of one’s shoulders, don’t you think?

What’s your go to website to waste time on?

When I’m at home wasting time, I usually browse Reddit or Facebook.

If you could do any job in the world for one day, what would it be?

I know its cliché, but I think it would be cool to be president for a day. I’d like to know some of the top secret information that isn’t shared with the public. Plus, it would be cool to be in control of one of the most powerful nations for a day.

Fun facts – have anything interesting people should know about you?

Not too much interesting about myself. I’m pretty big into hockey, cars, and wine. Oh, and I’m also allergic to peanuts.

Stay tuned for next week's employee spotlight!
