Shawn after fulfilling his groomsman duties....

While brainstorming about what to write blogs about, I wanted to find a way for my readers to get to know some of the awesome people who I know.  The best way I could come up with was an interview series.

Meet my friend ShawnShawn is a wonderful friend who is also known as Isabella’s God-Father Uncle Shawn.

Name: Shawn Powers

Age: 30

Location: Schenectady NY

Relationship Status: Single

Occupation: Retail Management, Geek Extraordinaire

What is the most challenging part of your job? Keeping cool in the face of utter madness.

What do you want to do when you grow up?
Do I have to?  I guess it would be to either be some type of computer technician, or software design.  They say if you do something you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.

Is you had to choose between football and computers, which would you choose and why?
You’re really making me answer this???  Sigh… Football is more fun

What is the strangest thing that’s every happened to you on a date?
I got stuck in my truck in the snow, in the middle of nowhere, with no cell phone service, so I walked up the road to call a tow truck, who was crazy and moved my truck by nearly backing it into a ditch.  Yeah, that was fun.

Since you’re a single guy, and single gals might be reading this, tell us what makes you stand out compared to all the other guys out there.
Hmm, I guess the fact that I am a good guy.  (I have 2 girls sitting here telling me to type that.  Take that for what you will J )

What’s always in your refrigerator?
Water & condiments.  Once in a while I’ll actually put food in it too, just to be different.

Shawn with his Dad Dana and his Sister Melinda

Tell us about your hometown of New Philadelphia, OH.
Typical small town America, a place you can feel safe walking down the street.  I think my friend put it best when he traveled home with me on vacation. He said it was the friendliest town he had ever been in.  Football is a passion so much more so than here.  Everyone doesn’t know everyone else, but it’s homey.

What was your New Year’s Resolution? To stop making resolutions!

What’s your favorite amusement park? Cedar Point in Sandusky, OH.

What’s your dream car?
I like the Honda CRZ a lot, but I think if you put a gun to my head, it would be the new Chevy Camaro.

What do you think are key traits in a great friend?
It needs to be someone who can listen, be there when you need them most, and someone who can be trusted.
