Getting The Edge On Ian
Third shift Dish washer. I got a summer job at a Hotel and Conference Center near a major Amusement Park in Cincinnati. I was washing dishes from 4p – midnight. It was constantly hot and very messy. It taught me a lot about work ethic and how to be enthusiastic doing things I may not enjoy.
“No one has ever drowned in their own sweat”
Favorite thing to do outside of work:
Cooking. I think trying new recipes and looking in my refrigerator for items that need to be used and making something out of them.
I have a Yorkie-Poo named Joe. He is only 12 pounds but it is all muscle. He has a personality all his own and loves to watch sports.
Chips and Salsa
90’s R&B, like Boyz II Men.
