5 questions with Casey Levens

A guilty pleasure you can't seem to quit?
I know I'm not alone when I answer NUTELLA. Hands down my guiltiest pleasure. Every morning I make a bowl of steel cut oats, slice up a banana, and add a heaping spoonful of the hazelnut spread handed down to humanity from the heavens. Beyond breakfast, I'll occasionally treat myself to Nutella dipped animal crackers or Biscoff cookies. If you haven't tried this, do it, you will thank me. Come to think of it, practically anything dipped in Nutella is bomb. I may have a problem haha.

What's the worst thing you've ever had to do for money?
I've worked some really rough jobs. I was on the maintenance crew at a golf course where my duties were mainly raking sand traps for hours on end and weed-wacking to the point I would finish the day looking like the Swamp Thing. I also worked on heavy duty agricultural machinery surrounded by rotting grain, wheat, and soybeans, all having equally disgusting yet unique smells. I've shoveled horse poo on my aunts farm, scrubbed cars inside and out at a car wash, and spread steaming, stinking mulch for a landscaping company. But the worst by far was working for a roofing company in the middle of summer. Besides the surface-of-the-sun heat on a rooftop in August that would zap my energy and melt my brain, I would finish the day covered in scrapes, cuts, and tar from lugging bundles of shingles up the ladder over, and over, and over... My hat goes off to the guys who did that full time, year round, it completely kicked my ass.

How do you like your eggs in the morning?
My egg preparation is dependent on the other ingredients I have in the house. If I have any veggies, meats, or cheeses I'll typically whip up a fluffy omelette and load it up with hot sauce. The secret to the fluff is adding a little water (not milk) when mixing the eggs. If the fridge is empty though, over easy with a piece of toast to dip in the yolk will still hit the spot.

Which flavour of ice cream best describes your personality and why?
Its not necessarily my favorite flavour, but I would say birthday cake batter. On the surface you may see plain vanilla, but when you scoop deeper you find these little funfetti surprises. You also find bits of raw batter that people either love or hate. I'm not a flashy guy who feeds on attention, which relates to the vanilla, but when you spend a little time with me, you discover I certainly know how to have fun and I do my best to make sure those around me are having fun too. However, I can be raw like the batter, I'll tell you exactly what's on my mind and how I feel, love me or hate me. :) 

If you could have any superpower for the day what would it be and what would you do? 
Not your typical superpower, but I would want the power of time travel. I also debated between flight and invisibility, but I could only do so much in a single day with those powers. With time travel, I could visit the future and bring back solutions for global issues, medical advancements and cures, and in the spirit of march madness, I would fill out a perfect bracket three or four straight years, just to mess with the guys at ESPN. 

Thanks Casey!
