Tell us one fact that people might not know about you.
While in college, I worked as a stage hand at a theatre in the San Francisco Bay Area.  One night, as part of a comedy bit, I was drafted to sing backup harmony for a mock lounge act, Joe Casual and the Casualaires.  I learned about a year later that my fellow Casualaire was Bruce  Springsteen—so  I can truthfully say I once was in a band with the Boss.
