Face Time with Mark Davoust
St. Charles resident Mark Davoust, 55, was shopping at Wasco Nursery in Campton Hills when he answered nine questions for the Kane County Chronicle’s Brenda Schory.
Where did you grow up? Naperville
Pets? A cat named Spartacus and a turtle named Mr. Reeves because he’s a Reeves turtle.
Who would play you in the movie of your life? Tom Hanks
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? It kept changing from cowboy to fireman to astronaut. I became a management consultant. The family business was manufacturing, so now I have my own manufacturing company, Cohesive Tape.
A book or movie you’d recommend? “Last Night in Twisted River” by John Irving for the book and any movie with John Wayne
Favorite charity? LivingWell Cancer Resource Center
Favorite local restaurant? We are blessed with a lot of really good restaurants, and I could not pick just one.
What is an interesting factoid about yourself? I was born at home in Hinsdale. My mom had just been to the doctor and said it would be another week, but I arrived that night. My dad was an army medic who delivered me. Then the doctor came and said, “Nice job Jack, see you at the hospital.”
Anything else? I have a collection of thousands of Hard Rock Café pins.
