What did you do in drum corps?
I marched in the Troopers from 03-05, then Blue Knights in '06, then Troopers again from 07-08. I played baritone, euphonium and contra (yes, bugles) and was horn sergeant in '08. In '09, I went on the road again with the Troopers and made a documentary on their return to DCI Finals called Hellbent for Victory, of which we've sold about 5,000 copies since its release. I also played on the Broncos Brass for the last 2 years, which was the first NFL brass ensemble of its kind.

What did you do in marching band?
In high school marching band, I played baritone then quads in drumline. In college I was in the drumline and played cymbals and quads.

Who's your favorite music person, living or dead, real or fictional?
This is pretty much the most unfair question of all time, but I'd say The Beatles are my definite favorite, like religiously. My recent favorite I guess is a band called Black Moth Super Rainbow. They're cool.

What's the best meal you've eaten? What was it and where?
I've definitely eaten a lot of food over the years but the best meal I've eaten recently was when I tried sushi for the first time. Now I feel like a dingus for missing out on this deliciousness for so long.

In one sentence, what do you actually do all day in your job?
I learn how to balance art and business.

What was your first job?
I worked at Target in electronics. Pretty much selling batteries to senior citizens.

What's the last thing you saw in the movies?
Spiderman 3D. Way better than those 3 Tobey Maguire disasters. And like 50 people have told me I look just like the new guy playing Spiderman... Stan Lee must be spinning in his grave.

Do you give money to panhandlers?
Yeah, Karma.

What's your drink at Starbucks?
Stock white mocha. Whole milk and whip.

What's your drink at the local bar?
Irish car bomb.

How often do you prepare your own meals?
Does coffee count as a meal? I think it does.

What's your favorite cereal?
Cracklin' Oat Bran with Very Vanilla Silk. Yes I'm serious.

What's hanging above your sofa?
Tons of chipped paint.

How much is too much to spend on a haircut?
Haircut?

When's bedtime?
It's more like a series of naps. I call the nighttime one big nap.

Have you been to NYC? Which do you prefer, the old Times Square or the new Times Square?
Yes, first time was last summer's free day. Times Square is awesome. One of the only places where it's always daytime.

How about Broadway? What have you loved?
Never seen Broadway in person, but West Side Story is my all-time favorite adaptation.

What do you think of American Idol?
I think Ryan Seacrest must be rich.

Do you prefer fiction or nonfiction? What is the last book you read?
Both! Facts are sweet, but imagination is too. The last book I read was On the Road by Jack Kerouac. I read it every summer.

Who is your mortal enemy?
Instagram.

When's the last vacation you took? Where did you go?
In August 2011, my roommate and I took a train from Denver to San Francisco and spent 2 days there, then bussed to LA where we spent a week with one of my close buddies from drum corps. He's a float driver at Disneyland.

Do you FB? What do you like about it?
Yes, I like being able to stalk people at will.

Do you Twitter?
@TheCadets

Where do you go to be alone?
My room in the basement of The Frathouse. I turned it from a place where things went to die into the ultimate maxed-out chill zone.

And finally, if you could meet one person, dead or living, who would it be?
Aristotle.
