Drew Walker ::: #OnTheJob
Middays #OnTheJob 10AM – 3PM
Name: (an)Drew Walker
Birthday: March 8th
Status: Married to Jill for almost 15 years, our son Roy is 8 and our daughter Vivian is 6!
EYE COLOR: Green
HAIR COLOR: Brown/blond
SHOES I WORE TODAY:
Insulated Toms (it’s Winter!)
My family, Chicago Bears & NFL RedZone, the White Sox & Hawks, a great beer with great friends, a sunset on my front driveway, a quiet moment in the hot tub in wintertime, music at all times of the day
WHAT DO I FEAR:
Missing a moment with my kids
GOAL I WOULD LIKE TO ACHIEVE THIS YEAR:
To find joy in places you don’t normally look for them.
THOUGHTS WHEN I FIRST WAKE UP:
OUT OF BED:
AM I A HEALTH FREAK:
Nope, but we changed the way we eat in last October and I lost 17 pounds. Jill lost 34 (!). Eat real foods. No chemicals. Lots of greens and vegetables. Half your body weight in water every day. At least 7 hours of sleep a night. Your life will feel SOOOOO good!
FAVORITE TIME OF THE YEAR:
Bears season … football Sundays make me truly happy.
MY IDEA OF A GREAT VACATION:
The four of us on the water, with sand and sun and music and joy
IF I WEREN’T IN RADIO, WHAT WOULD I BE DOING:
Making the most of every opportunity that came my way
Whatever Jill’s cooking. She’s pretty amazing in our kitchen.
LITTLE KNOWN FACT ABOUT ME:
I sang show choir for four years in college & performed at Carnegie Hall with Mel Torme!
I can’t function without … music
My new guilty pleasure … Fitbit Charge HR (goal of 10,000 steps a day!)
Life is … too short to keep negative people around, both in your daily life and work too. Don’t give them another moment of your time.
Why didn’t I do this sooner … drink half my body weight in water daily. Life changing!
