Troy Cummings is the new Marketing Project Coordinator featured in our employee bio profile this month.
What is your favorite movie of all time?
Stranger Things is by far the best thing I’ve seen recently. Since that’s a TV series, I’d say my favorite movie would be Big Trouble in Little China. Actually, I like way too many movies to choose an all-time favorite. I watch a lot of really terrible movies from the 80s that would have gone straight to VHS; remember those plastic bricks?
Where would you go if you could travel anywhere?
I would love to visit Japan. All of the historical sites and natural beauty would be interesting to see. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Tokyo looks so futuristic and ultra-modern. I’m sure I’d go into sensory overload after being in Tokyo for a couple of days, but it would be worth it!
Who would you most like to trade places for a day?
Definitely “The King of Cool”, Steve McQueen in the 60s and 70s. Motorcycle and automobile racer, holder of a pilot’s license, motorcycle aficionado, exotic car collector, actor in some classic movies … and not to mention his impeccable sense of style. I only wish I could be that cool, even for one day!
What is your favorite food?
I’d probably have to say any kind of seafood. But again, I like so many different foods that it is hard to pick a favorite. I’m also a very adventurous eater and will try just about anything.
What is your pet peeve?
People who stand on the left side of escalators and moving walkways. The right is for standing, the left is for walking! Stop holding everyone up by treating it as your personal amusement park ride.
What is your secret talent?
Wet shaving with a straight razor. Years ago, I got tired of spending so much money on those disposable razor cartridges and decided to try something else. I picked up a refurbished straight razor and taught myself how to use it. Now I have a few different vintage razors and would never consider using anything else.
What is your favorite family tradition?
Going out for sushi on Christmas or Christmas Eve is one of my favorite family traditions. My extended family is pretty culturally diverse, so it’s great to find a way for all of us to get together. To be honest, we stole the idea from A Christmas Story (even though it was Chinese food in the movie).
