I've spent the past 25 years in small-college athletic administration and am currently looking for my next career opportunity. I enjoy officiating basketball games (keeps me somewhat fit) and spending time with my family. Having grown up in Michigan, I am an avid Detroit sports fan and keep track of the ups and downs of the Tigers, Lions, Red Wings and Pistons. When my travel plans call for air travel, Southwest is my first choice because of the overall experience from initial booking to trip's end...even my bad trips contain at least 1-2 pleasant surprises!
Favorite Southwest Moment
There are many...but I'll never forget the trip my wife and I took to Las Vegas to celebrate her birthday. Midway through the outbound flight one of the flight attendants made an annoucement that there was a traveller celebrating her birthday. They called my wife (Michelle) up to the front of the plane, presented her with a nice gift basket, and then we all sang Happy Birthday to her! She was totally surprised and it made for a great start to a wonderful Birthday Weekend!
