The 4x4 meme

four.jpgNo, this post is not about monster trucks or going offroading. I was recently tagged to participate in the 4x4 meme by Valeria Maltoni and Troy Worman. The point of this meme is to give you a bit more insight into who I am and what makes me tick on a personal level. The meme has four questions that each require four answers, so here you go.

4 jobs I've had:

  • Worked in the cart barn and caddied at a local country club in Columbus, OH
  • Spent a summer packing boxes at the McGraw Hill textbook distribution center in Columbus, OH
  • Worked in a "pet hotel" for a very long, hot (smelly) summer in St. Louis
  • Did my college internship at Mattel Toys in NYC helping them launch their first website for their preschool toy brand, proposed to my wife in Central Park many years later

4 places I've been:

  • Buenos Aires Argentina - one of my favorite places on Earth, spent many weeks down there in my previous job starting an office there
  • Paris France - Although I spent just a brief six hours in Paris, it was pretty incredible
  • Suva Fiji - My wife and I spent our honeymoon in Fiji and truly enjoyed every minute of it
  • Louisville, Kentucky - I grew up in Louisville (pronounced Lou-a-vul if you are not from there) and spent 14 years before moving to Ohio

4 bands or artists I am listening to:

  • Tiesto - I am a huge electronic music fan and Tiesto is fantastic
  • Arctic Monkeys - great band with a solid new album
  • Mark Ronson - a new find, but a real talent
  • Radiohead - what can I say, they're amazing

4 of my favorite foods:

  • Sushi (especially spicy tuna)
  • Mexican (any type)
  • Indian (tikka masala rules)
  • Nachos (could have been put in the Mexican category, but I believe they deserve a light of their own)

I'd love to learn a little more about Sean, Katie, Ryan and Arun. Even if you haven't been tagged, feel free to share on your own blog if you have one or in the comments on this post.
