Last book you read? The Paleo Diet by Loren Cordain
What’s something people would be surprised to know about you? I’m a cross between Usher and Timberlake on the dance floor. My childhood friends will attest to that.
Favorite vacation spot? Back home to the Berkshires of western Massachusetts to see my fam.
Celebrity crush? Erin Andrews
Any pets? Yes! Charlie, 15-yearold chocolate lab to whom my book is dedicated to—the ultimate wingman
What do you notice first about a woman? Presence. And, of course, a certain level of aesthetics.
Three words to describe yourself: Intense, motivated, real
What makes a relationship successful? Patience, communication, empathy and, of course, chemistry. Chemistry is very important.
One thing you absolutely must accomplish in your lifetime? I want to be the Papa John’s of paleo-based clean and healthy meal-plan delivery.
Hottest thing a woman can wear? I’m a sucker for the little black dress, and a woman’s ability to pull off the jeans, flips, tee, baseball cap as well.
Most played song on your iTunes? Rocky theme. That’s easy.
Your personal motto? Do what you can with what you have. Don’t worry about what you don’t have or can’t do. Miraculous things happen from humble beginnings. That’s what makes them miraculous.
How will a woman know you’re interested? Ha. I wrote a book teaching guys how to get out of their own way and say “hello” versus standing there, doing nothing, and trying to act cool. She will know. I’m not afraid to say hello.
