Joe Ruggiero Fun Facts

Maxine Whitely, Editor-in-Chief

Spectrum: What is your favorite animal/do you have any pets?
Ruggiero: I would say I’m definitely a dog person, and my favorite is my old beagle — her name is Tess.
S: What is your favorite color
R: My favorite color is blue.
S: What do you like to do in your free time?
R: In my free time I like to travel, explore the city (currently Chicago, but am looking forward to doing it in Minneapolis!), and hang out with friends and family.  I’m also a big “foodie” and love to both cook and go out to great restaurants.
S: What is your favorite movie/TV show?
R: My favorite movie/tv show… ok, this one is REALLY hard because I like so many so it’s hard to pick just one…  For movies, maybe… Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind or Pan’s Labrinth?  TV…  The Wire or Transparent?
S: What is one quirky thing about you?
R: There are many quirky things about me, many of which I’m loathe to admit, of course…  How about the fact that I have an irrational fear of hotel beds? or maybe that I love coffee but hate coffee-flavored things…  Weird, I know.
