What makes you unique or is something very few know about you? I read a lot of comics and a little bit of everything from pretty much all publishers and even with their recent fumbles and less than stellar publications, I will always be a DC man at heart. Also, I like to think I bring a capricious sense of humor and whimsy to the workplace. 😉

What makes you unique or is something very few know about you? 
I was born with 11 fingers. I had and extra thumb on my right hand and now because of it I cannot bend my thumb on my hand at the knuckle, however, it is double jointed and I can bend it so that it looks like I broke it where the thumb meets the hand.
