dustin throwback photoDid you work while in school?  Oh yes, 2-3 jobs depending on the time of year. I was a lifeguard at my high school pool, worked at a liquor store, bused tables at the Stagecoach Tavern, and worked as a Water Safety Coordinator for New York State Parks.

How far away was your family? Close, I lived at home going to school online. 

Roommate troubles? My brother, those with siblings growing up can relate.

What were the big fashion trends?  Cowboy hats for some reason.

What’s one thing you wish someone had told you during your first year?  Plan for the future and work harder in your classes.
