FAVORITE OUTDOOR GAME AS A KID:

My next door neighbors and I were imagination champions with self-made games like “Statue Maker” and “Shark.” We also spent hours on the “Neat Swing”, a plastic disc at the end of a rope hanging from the apple tree in my backyard.

FAVORITE ACTIVITY TO DO WITH YOUR FAMILY:

For a couple of years now, my family and some friends have gotten together to hike the Grand Canyon together! We hike down to the bottom, spend a night or two, and then hike back out.

WHAT MAKES YOU SMILE:

Traveling to a new place. My goal is to make it to 30 countries by 30 years old, so I’m always on the move!

FAVORITE RADIO FLYER PRODUCT AND WHY:

You can’t go wrong with a Model 18 Classic Red Wagon! I still have mine from when I was a kid, and my neighbor who lives across the street still has hers from the 60s. Those things are tough!
