What was your first job? I worked at a small ice cream shop in East Peoria.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I became a teacher, but I’m not teaching now.

What is an interesting factoid about yourself? When I was a teacher, I used to repossess cars on the side for extra money. I did it for about a year. I worked with my brother. It wasn’t bad. My brother did all the legwork in tracking people down, and I never ended up with a gun in my face. We followed people across town and took their car when they pulled in a parking lot.
