Get to Know Trisonics: Daniel Tostige

Each month we like to highlight one of our employees, so that our followers can learn about the Trisonics team on a more personal level. Get to know Territory Manager, Dan Tostige in this month's employee spotlight!


If you had to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Tacos.  So much flavor and so many ways to make them.  I fell in love at an early age.  When I retire, I plan to travel around the country in a taco truck selling tacos.  I guess that wouldn't technically be a retirement though.

If someone were to look at your Netflix/TV account, what kind of shows would they find?
Stand ups.  I like to laugh.  I think it is an incredible skill if you can just stand and talk in front of a large group of people and make them laugh.  Some of my favorites are Bill Burr and Jim Gaffigan.  Polar opposites.

What are some hobbies of yours?
Sports.  I grew up playing and watching sports every chance I had.  I really enjoy visiting baseball stadiums, and hope to visit every park at some point.  I plan on visiting Nationals Park in DC this season when my Tigers are in town.  I'm currently at 12 and counting, and PNC Park in Pittsburgh is my favorite so far.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Bora Bora.  Other than Canada a few times, I've never been outside of the country.  So every time I see pictures of Bora Bora, they look like heaven.  Plus the name sounds so fancy.
What is the first thing you'd do if you won the lottery?
After regaining consciousness from passing out, I would plan my trip to Bora Bora.
If you could master one skill that you don't have right now, what would it be?
Folding a fitted sheet.  I think if one can conquer this task, the possibilites are endless.  Brewing a perfect beer would be a close second.

When I dance, I look like......?
Phil Collins said it best, I can't dance.  I usually don't make an attempt at it, and hopefully if I decide to at some point then nobody is watching!

If you had access to a time machine where and when would you go?
Probably 50 years into the future.  Very intriguing to think of the technology that will exist at that time.  Plus if I'm still alive I could hang out with my older self.  
What is a favorite quote of yours?
Anything Ben Franklin.  I could read his quotes for hours.  If I had to pick one it would be, "Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late."
