Q: When did you move to Routt County and what brought you here?

A: I moved to Steamboat for a single ski season after I graduated from college in 1988 to perfect my turn -- and I am still working on it.

Q: What's the biggest risk you've taken recently?

A: Running around stage wearing a diaper in "Episode III: The Tourons Strike Back."

Q: Describe your morning routine.

A: Snooze bar, snooze bar, snooze bar. Coffee, shower then run to my first meeting and hope to God I am not late.

Q: Have you ever had a book change your life? What was it and why?

A: Jim Harrison's "Just Before Dark." It made me hungry for life, America and food.

Q: What's the best piece of advice you've ever been given?

Q: If you could invite any four people over for dinner, who would they be, what would you serve and what would you talk about?

A: Alfred E. Newman, Bobby Orr, Mike Myers and Drew Barrymore. We would start with Harve-alaya (my version of jambalaya) then I would serve grilled pork tenderloin with steamed asparagus, salad and Ben and Jerry's for dessert. Hockey, life and laughter.

Q: In the Meatloaf song, "I'll do anything for love, but I won't do that." What is "that"?

A: Put a sharp stick in my eye.
