Name: Doug Swift

Doug SwiftWhat is your job at ITS?

Procurement Analyst.   Fun fact: Over the last 26 years I've been part of 7 different groups at ITS and had 4 different job titles (but only 2 official job descriptions :-O ).

If you were a salad dressing, what type would you be and why?

Mighty Caesar.  No such thing as too much garlic in something.  Not too many people do not like a good Caesar salad.

What sport will you be most closely following during the Olympics this summer?

What, the Olympics are this summer?!  Honestly, as a single parent also caring for his mom, and maintaining a house, and doing all the volunteer work I do, and who normally does not watch much TV anyways, I probably won't make time to watch the Olympics.

What is your toothpaste of choice?

The dentist has me on a high fluoride one. Can't remember the last time I had a bad checkup :-)

What is your all-time favorite movie comedy?

Toss up between 'Caddyshack' with Bill Murray vs gopher, or 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail' with "just a flesh wound" and "What is your quest?".

What is the oddest thing you've ever won?

An electric toy car.  I got a call that I had won a toy car.  What a surprise when I arrived at the store to find it was one of those big 5 foot long chargeable-battery child-can-drive ones. Fortunately my son was able to drive it for about a year.
