Name: (an)Drew Walker
Birthday: March 8th
Status: Married to Jill for 12+ years, our son Roy is 6 and our daughter Vivian is almost 4!

EYE COLOR: Green
HAIR COLOR: Brown/blond
HEIGHT: 6’0″

SHOES I WORE TODAY:
Do bare feet around the house count?

MY WEAKNESSES:
Roy, Vivian, Jill, Miller Lite, Three Floyds Zombie Dust, my vintage VW Beetles (Jill says two kids, so only two VW projects at any one time), Spicy Bloody Marys on Sunday mornings, the Bears, great music

WHAT DO I FEAR:
Missing the little things for always looking at the big picture

GOAL I WOULD LIKE TO ACHIEVE THIS YEAR:
To enjoy more of life with no technology at times, to live in and savor the moment.

THOUGHTS WHEN I FIRST WAKE UP:
Is it already that time?

MY BEDTIME:
10p, but always want it to be earlier

OUT OF BED:
6:30 – 7a

AM I A HEALTH FREAK:
Nope, but determined last year that if you can’t pronounce the ingredients in your food, you shouldn’t be eating it. Big difference!

FAVORITE TIME OF THE YEAR:
Bears season … football Sundays make me truly happy.

MY IDEA OF A GREAT VACATION:
Just me and Jill, somewhere on the water, with sand and music and lots of sun

IF I WEREN’T IN RADIO, WHAT WOULD I BE DOING:
I was a CPA in a former life (still have the license), but I wouldn’t mind being a stay-at-home dad

FAVORITE FOODS:
Corn on the cob, green beans & potatoes together, Indian food, “Margarita” pizza … you name it, I usually like it

LITTLE KNOWN FACT ABOUT ME:
I have a photographic memory for numbers. Once I see it two times, it’s locked in my brain for instant recall.

I can’t function without … my first cup of DD-brewed coffee with real cream and sugar

My new guilty pleasure … Comcast On-Demand! We knocked out 3 seasons of 3 new shows, in only 10 days

Life is … something new every day. Try to recognize it and grab it all

Why didn’t I do this sooner … appeal our property taxes

The one charity you might not know about, but should … Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago (www.epilepsychicago.org)
