Mr. Tonnar Estingoy

If you had to eat one thing for every meal going forward, what would you eat? 
If I were limited to just one thing for every meal it would definitely be seafood.  I love all kinds of seafood and eat it every chance I can.  There is such a variety of seafood and so many ways to prepare it that I feel like it would be hard to get tired of it. 

What was something you've done that made you feel extreme happiness?  
My wife and I were able to take a trip to explore Mayan ruins.  Being able to experience those ancient cities and touch and climb a pyramid with my amazing wife brought me such joy and happiness that it is hard to even explain. 

What was your favorite subject in school? 
Oddly enough, my favorite subject in middle school was science.  I loved the exploration and discovery part of it.  I also liked that it had specific laws and answers that were either right or wrong. There was no room for ambiguity or interpretation. This is obviously a far cry from art, but when I was a kid, I was a science head! 

When you're not working, how do you like to spend your time? 
I love being out in nature with my family.  We do a lot of camping, beaching, swimming, fishing, lounging and playing outside.  If there is something that we can do outside as a family I’m all about it!

If you were a super-hero, what powers would you have?
If I had super power I would have the ability to find lost things people, keys, that report your boss is looking for…

What was your favorite subject in school?
My favorite subject in school was Art. I loved learning new ways to create beautiful things and to express myself.

Which of the five senses would you say is your strongest?
My strongest senses is taste, I can usually tell you most of the ingredients in a dish once I have tasted it.

Are you related or distantly related to anyone famous?
I am distantly related to Washington Irving who wrote the Legend of Sleepy Hollow. This might be the cause of my affinity with all things spooky.
