What’s on your nightstand? “John Adams” by David McCullough and “The Bond: Our Kinship with Animals, Our Call to Defend Them” by Wayne Pacelle.
What’s your guilty pleasure? Fried clam cakes: a fried, doughy, fritter-type treat from my childhood days in Rhode Island that I make on occasion. I can eat a dozen with ease. Golf. I’m terrible at golf and feel guilty committing four-plus hours to a round of golf, but I love to play. Facebook and Twitter. Some people thinks social media is a waste of time, but I think Facebook is one of the best ways to stay connected with old friends, classmates and colleagues around the country; and Twitter is a great source of instant news and information on endless topics — and both are very effective ways to spread the word about animals in need of new families here in Palm Beach County.
What’s you favorite junk food? Clam cakes
If you could have dinner with anyone, who would it be? My wife and daughters. We cherish that time — almost every day.
Who do you admire most? In today’s world, I admire people who are compassionate and selfless. People who are actively helping to improve the lives of others — people and animals.
What’s playing on your iPod? U2, everything from Johnny Cash to Linkin Park, Macy Gray to Carrie Underwood, Andrea Bocelli to Bruno Mars, Queen to Lady Gaga. I’m all over the place.
