Elgin resident Rick Hernandez, 31, was shopping at the St. Peter Barn Sale when he answered 10 questions for the Kane County Chronicle’s Brenda Schory.

Where did you grow up? Elgin.

Who would play you in the movie of your life? Forest Whitaker.

First job? McDonald’s.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? Football player. I did not become that – instead I became a dad.

Hobbies? Sports and shopping for antiques.

Favorite local restaurant? Gen Hoe in Geneva.

What is an interesting factoid about yourself? I once sat next to Tom Ricketts, the owner of the Cubs, on a US Airways flight to Arizona last year. They were opening the new stadium there. It was kind of weird; he was sitting in coach.
