Shawshank Redemption, Forrest Gump, Remember the Titans

If you didn’t “have” to work for a whole year, how would you spend your days? 

I’d spend my days as a Dechtman family dog. Walks, treats, belly rubs…they have the best life! 

If you could choose any time period to be alive, when would that be and why? 

Right now is the most exciting time to be alive. Humankind has made incredible progress. 200 years ago, 85% of the world’s population lived in extreme poverty. 20 years ago it was 29%. Today only 9% live in extreme poverty. Also, 200 years ago there was little entertainment readily available. Now, our entertainment options are endless. My girlfriend and I love watching shows together on Netflix.

Are you a cat person or a dog person? 

My family grew up being dog lovers, but i’m the type of person that would be okay with most animals (not snakes) as long as it makes me and others happy. 

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? 

I’d like the power to predict the future because nobody can. 

What is the first thing you notice about another person when you meet them for the first time? 

Their smile. 

Do you think the Broncos will be good this year? 

Let’s hope so. Go Broncos!
