Routt County Spotlight: Michael David


— Age: 43

Occupation: Sensei, Rocky Mountain Karate Academy; Steve Green Company employee

Place of birth: Boonton, N.J.

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

A. May 4, 1998. A friend suggested I get past the Front Range and see the "real" Colorado. So far, so good.

Q. Describe your morning routine.

A. Up, feed the cats, listen to NPR, check e-mail, eat a bit and head off to my morning personal training clients.

Q. Has a book ever changed your life? What was it and why?

A. "Siddhartha" was thrown at my head. "Read this," they yelled. I did and learned about the nature of truth.

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

A. Waiting for the "right" relationship is worth waiting for. Although I've had a few, I'm still waiting.

Q. What three things would you want people to know about you?

A. I'm the laziest fit man in town. Chocolate chip cookies are my heroin. Karate really is as fun as everyone thinks.

Q. If you could invite any four people to dinner, who would they be and what would you talk about?

A. The top four people named Manson. It certainly won't be the same "boring old chat." Restraints will be required for some.

Q. Do you collect anything?

A. Good friends who make a positive difference in the world.

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

A. Be handcuffed, after that it's none of your business.

Q. Who is your favorite superhero? Why?

A. I'm stuck here - ability to fly or be invisible? Hmm.

Q. Do you have any phobias?

A. Ophthalmophobia.
