Thomas Viel | Sweet + The Flying Rhino

What makes you more than just good-looking? I’m flattered that you think I’m even good-looking. I know I’ve got a pretty funny and dry sense of humor that only certain people can understand. 

Where did you go to school? What was your major? I have a degree in business/accounting already; however, I recently decided to switch it up and go back to school to be a registered nurse.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Hopefully, happily settled into my nursing career … and if I play my cards right, I’ll have a handsome, smart husband and a couple chihuahuas.

What book is on your bedside table? I don’t have any books on my bedside table because I don’t have a bedside table, but my favorite book of all time is The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

What can’t you stop listening to on your iPod? I’ve been listening to a lot of Lorde lately, but I love everything from EDM to classic rock ~ just no country!

What’s your favorite charity? Any nonprofit animal shelter.

What’s the most annoying thing a customer has ever done? I could talk for hours about this … separate checks when everyone is paying cash, complaining about drinks not being strong enough, asking for gluten-free menus.

What do you do on your days off? I currently don’t have any days off. In the summertime, when I take time off, I am usually at the beach.

What’s your favorite drink? Tequila on the rocks with a lot of limes … or a Godfather.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be? I wish I could watch people at the gym and absorb their health benefits.

What’s your passion? I love cars ~ driving, working on them, researching them; cars are definitely my passion.
