Town you Live In:  Litchfield, NH

How long have you been dancing?  3.5 years taking lessons, all at PaperMoon.

Marty and Rick HustleHow did you get into ballroom?  My wife put dance lessons on her Christmas list, multiple times. It took me three holiday seasons to actually buy a package of lessons.

Which dance do you enjoy the most?  Probably Cha Cha but right now I’m having a blast learning a Group Salsa routine with Ray.

What is your favorite dance memory?  The first Group Routine Marty and I did together with a bunch of other Moonies. It was a Foxtrot performed to “Almost There” from Disney’s “The Princess and the Frog.”

What dance goal would you like to conquer next?  Get proficient enough in V-Waltz to dance a full song.

What are your other hobbies?  Fishing and getting into trouble with my two grandkids.

Tell us something you think most people don’t know about you.  I’m afraid of heights, and dancing at socials. My wife’s advice, “it’s best not to look down”.
