Learn about Shawn, our favorite Superhero wannabe…
When I was a child, my favorite pastime was:  TV, especially watching cartoons.  It helped to make me the warped individual that I am today.

If I could eat one thing all day it would be: Though a drinkable, I’m going to go with coffee.

The color to best describe my personality would be: Blue.  Can’t tell you why (because I don’t know), I just has always had a fondness for blue.

My favorite part about Portsketch is: How insanely much fun it is to hang with a group of cool and funny people.

My favorite movie is: Star Wars.  Dammit, not “A New Hope” or Episode IV or any of that crap!  When I saw it in the theater when it was released in 1977, it was muthafuckin’ STAR WARS and that’s all it will ever be to me [/end needless nerd rant]

If I could be any fictional character it would be:  Jay-sus… I dunno.  Umm… Maybe Hazel from Watership Down? (though I’m probably closer to Fiver or Pipkin)

The last thing I usually think of before falling asleep is: Is walking about the deck of a sweet TD-8C scout ship as I tool around the galaxy… or about my beautiful wife, whom I  love so much.  You know, either one.

If I could have a dozen of something it would be:  Avoiding any obvious answers like “winning lottery tickets”, I guess I’d go with (a pause to note that I’ve been sitting for 10 minutes and not really thinking of anything that I’d like a dozen of, so I’m going to go with my first gut reaction…) Dice.  As long as they’re sweet & custom, icosahedrons, Fudge dice, whatever.

My dream job is:  Superhero.
