  • I used to work at the Sculpture Garden Skating rink. It’s one of my favorite unlikely biographical tidbits, that I can drive a Zamboni; very useful in those work team-building exercises.
    (Funny enough, I can drive a Zamboni and lay you down some very pretty ice; but I can’t drive a stick shift car, which theoretically is less complicated. Go figure.)
