What do you enjoy most about working with children?
My favorite part about working with children is giving them the ability to create and produce anything they want.  I wish I had Small Factory when I was growing up.

Tell me your most rewarding experience(s) working at Small Factory.
My most rewarding experience is working in the hospitals.  I have seen very sick kids perk up at the sight of a computer and the means to be creative.

What are your hobbies and interests?
I enjoy riding my motorcycle, history, good food, and family.
