As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up and why?
An astronaut. Who doesn’t want to be an astronaut when they grow up? At various times I also wanted to be a doctor, an engineer, a musician, and a baseball player. Basically I wanted to be anything except an architect.
In one word, why do you love what you do?
I’m supposed to say “Jon Holzheimer” right?
What would surprise people most about you?
If I gave that away then it wouldn’t be a surprise…
Where would you most like to travel and why?
I would like to travel to any other planet where intelligent life exists. As long as they’re friendly. I think there’s one out there somewhere. If I had to stay on Earth, I’d go to Germany for Oktoberfest and see how much weight I could gain in two weeks.
