What do you like to do for fun outside of work? Play video games. My favorite is World of Warcraft. I also like to watch movies and race cars, although I haven’t raced since last year. I did most of my racing at Willow Springs International Motorsports Park in Willow Springs near Rosamond and Lancaster, Ca., which is about an hour north of L.A. I started racing when I was 17.

Name something on your bucket list. I’d like to have laser eye surgery.

What’s the craziest/most outrageous thing you’ve ever witnessed or done? I once worked at a car dealership and I occasionally had to do repo runs from time to time. I wasn’t sure what to expect the first time I was asked to repossess a car, which by the way, I was asked to go because the car was a manual transmission and no one else knew how to drive a stick. So I and another freshman salesman went prepared for the worst with a baseball bat and a gun. It turned out to belong to a fragile, older man, so we retrieved the truck without incident, but the managers got a good laugh at us for expecting trouble.
