Person you got nervous meeting and why?
I once was so nervous to meet Tony Hawk at a Rainforest Cafe, that instead of going up to his table and giving a quick “hello” I just walked/ran past his table and said under my breath “Hey Birdman”. I don’t think he even noticed I walked by. A couple years later, I met him again for real and told him the story, which gave him a good laugh.

Two fun facts about you:
