Favourite activity

Camping, preferably as far away from other people as possible

Best thing about working in construction

The sense of accomplishment when you stand back and look at what you’ve built

If I had to eat one meal every day for the rest of my life, it would be

Peanut butter and bananas

Three traits that define me

Proud, inquisitive, loyal

One thing I can’t live without

Coffee

A leader

Means not asking anyone to do something you wouldn’t do yourself

Best place I’ve travelled

Croatia because it was beautiful, reasonably priced and the people were incredibly friendly

In sports, I prefer

Offence because I’d rather have the responsibility of scoring than not letting a goal in

Least favourite food

Black liquorice

Hometown

Born in Guelph, Ontario, but grew up in Saudi Arabia

I’m happiest when

I’m outdoors with my wife and the dogs — as long as the dogs are behaving
