HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED AT BERNSTEIN-BURKLEY, P.C.?
1 Month

ARE YOU MARRIED? HAVE CHILDREN? 
Married with 3 sons (all 3 are Pitt Grads in Computer/I.T.)

WHAT IS ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE MEMORIES FROM BERNSTEIN-BURKLEY, P.C.?  
The very nice welcome I received when I started working here.

IF YOU COULD HAVE DINNER WITH ONE FAMOUS PERSON IN HISTORY, AND ONE FAMOUS PERSON ALIVE TODAY, WHO WOULD THEY BE, AND WHY?
Wow, tough one, could be very many – Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Jesus, Martin Luther King, Arthur Ashe, Bill Gates, Tony Campolo, Pope Francis – but I’ll go with a music theme. Miles Davis, for changing the music world several times and being kind of a wild cultural figure, and Bob Dylan, for being a great poet/lyricist who continually comes up with great music and lyrics (stories) that are still relevant today. That would be a fun dinner! For a 4th at dinner, throw in Maurice Ravel, for making the world’s most beautiful music.

WHAT DO YOU DO FOR FUN?  
Listening to music (especially jazz), playing tennis (East Hills Tennis League), walking (with my iPod), cooking and watching baseball (Beat ‘Em Bucs!).

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE?
Not really a quote, but a slogan (I’m not a big NIKE fan, but, this is a good slogan) – “Just Do It”

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE…
FOOD: I’d have to go with 2: Cincinnati Chili (all 5 ways, of course), and my Mother’s halupki recipe – stuffed cabbages with beef/port/rice/bacon/sauerkraut and no tomato sauce.
VACATION SPOT: Many great family vacations at Ocean City, MD and/or Rehoboth Beach, DE.   
MOVIE: More than one: The Sting, North by Northwest (and other Alfred Hitchcock movies), and earlier James Bond Movies (Sean Connery/Roger Moore).
BOOK: Since my favorite author is Ray Bradbury, I’ll pick 3 of his here – Fahrenheit 451, The Illustrated Man and Dandelion Wine.
