What’s your biggest turn-on?
A person who’s willing to learn and open to new exposures. Somebody who’s very outgoing.

What’s your biggest turn-off?
Somebody who doesn’t see life. I notice in the gay community, it can be all about the hookup. I want companionship. So that ”hookup mentality” is a turn-off to me.

What’s something you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t yet tried?
I’d like the opportunity to orbit the earth.

What’s something you’ve tried that you never want to do again?
I’m not going to an inauguration again. It was crowded and cold. I’ll settle for watching it on TV.

What’s your favorite website?
Politico’s website. I’m also a fan of Twitter.

What position do you play in the big baseball game of life?
The position I see myself in is third base. It’s one of the most exciting positions.

What’s your favorite retail store?

What’s the most you’ll spend on a haircut?

What about on shoes?
