Team Spotlight

What is your favorite part about being a Project Supervisor at KS&R?
I think after 15 years at KS&R it's been the diversity of the projects and being able to work with the many dedicated INSITE (KS&R's call center) interviewers, as well as the other KS&R professional staff. In this social media and technology dominated world, thankfully there are people who are still willing to speak with us over the phone.

Which matters more, quality or price, when it comes to shopping for a new product? Why?
Definitely quality. I don't mind spending more, if I know the product is well made, and if I have a problem the manufacturer will take care of it. Better made products usually last longer and most times, you really do get what you pay for.

What would people be surprised to learn about you?
I used to play competitive racquetball and spent a week training at the Olympic Training Center, in Colorado Springs. It was one of the hardest things I've done, but it was a great experience interacting with Olympic athletes from other sports.

What is something common from your childhood that will seem strange to future generations?
I think one thing is how close families and extended families were when I was growing up, not only in proximity but also in daily face-to-face interactions. Everyone lived near each other and visited each other's homes. Now families are scattered in different locations and have to communicate through social media. Unfortunately, I don't think future generations will experience those kinds of family dynamics again.

What was the last gift you gave someone?
I gave my granddaughter a Frozen 2 bike for her birthday. It had to be Frozen 2 and not Frozen 1.

What is your favorite kind of cookie?
Chocolate chip with the big chunks of chocolate.

Do you personally change the oil in your car?
Nope, that's what Valvoline Instant Oil change is for.

What would you sing at Karaoke night?
'New York, New York' by Frank Sinatra. What else would an Italian-guy, from New York, sing?

Do you like or dislike surprises? Why or why not?
I like surprises, but they are so hard to pull off.

Would you rather vacation in Hawaii or Alaska, and why?
I grew up on Long Island going to the beach almost every weekend, so it would definitely be Hawaii. I don't like the cold at all, so it wouldn't be Alaska.
