Fifteen minutes with … a pizza maker

Age: 25Place of birth: Craig, Colo.Occupation: Domino’s Pizza store manager for Glenwood Springs and Carbondale. When did you move to Garfield County and why? I’ve lived in Rifle for the past 15 years. We lived in Utah for around eight years, but my parents got homesick and wanted to come back to Colorado. My mother grew up in Basalt and my dad grew up in Carbondale. What do you like most about Glenwood Springs? Being in the mountains. I’m not an outdoors nut, but I like hiking. What is the first thing you would do after winning the lottery? Quit my job and move to a warmer place.

What do you do in your spare time? I enjoy hanging out with my friends. I like to cook, but not pizza. A lot of my time is spent driving in the mountains and commuting to and from work.What is your favorite type of pizza? That would have to be one that I created. Toppings include Basil-pesto, chicken, artichoke, tomatoes, mushrooms and provolone cheese. Every year Dominos has a competition where you can create a pizza and if it wins the competition, they will sell it. Mine didn’t make it in this year, but maybe next year. Ever had a book, movie or news event change your life? I can’t think of one, so I don’t think so. Best piece of advice you’ve received? From my boss, Mark Campisi, “It’s just pizza.” He says that when things get to stressful around here. It helps remind me that when the day is done the pizza stays here.

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up and why? A teacher because of the helping spirit of it. You get to help others learn and grow. If you had only three CD’s to listen to what would they be? AC/DC – Back in Black, the Rolling Stones – 40 Licks, and the Beatles White Album. Any tattoos? No. I can’t figure out anything that I would want to live with for the rest of my life. I know you can get them removed, but if you are going to get a tattoo removed, I don’t understand why you would want to get it in the first place. Who is the most interesting person you have ever delivered to? In Rifle there was a guy who always answered the door without any clothes. No matter who delivered to him, he never had any clothes on. We finally told his girlfriend to tell him that we wouldn’t deliver to him unless he had clothes on.
