Get to know Shane

What is your favorite holiday? and why?

I would have to say Christmas. I love decorating the inside and outside of my house to make everyone smile when they see it. I also love the sites and sounds of the season. We start playing Christmas music after Halloween in our house.

Name one thing that not many people know about you.

I was on the collegiate debate team at the University of Utah

What are your favorite things to do while away from the office?

Spend time with my family, watch my kids do whatever makes them happy, travel

If you could only eat three foods a day, what would they be?

Any flavor of ice cream, Korean BBQ, spaghetti

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A fireman, a computer programmer, or a lawyer

If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy?

A cruise around the world for the family, and hope everyone forgets who we are by the time we get home.

If you could go on a road trip with any one person (dead or alive), who would you choose and where would you go?
It would have to be my wife. One of our first dates was a long drive up the coast from San Clemente and we were supposed to end in Malibu and have brunch. We didn’t even make it past LA due to the traffic, but we held hands so long our arms and hands were sore. We want to drive the entire US and Canada in an RV once we retire.

Who or what inspires you?
My wife and kids. It is amazing what I learn from them everyday.

Who are your favorite bands?
I LOVE MUSIC! I’d need a juke box not a desert island disc to answer this. Top 3: Stereophonics, Meatloaf, Oasis

If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play the lead role as you?
Young me: Angus Jones Adult me: John Goodman
