January of 1988

I was a five-time champion, winning $58,802

What effect did being on Jeopardy! have on your life?
In addition to bringing welcome cash into my life, being on Jeopardy! made me realize how odd it is to be, even temporarily, a celebrity. For several months after my appearance, strangers recognized me, yelled at me from cars as I walked down the street, whispered and stared at me in restaurants, called me on the phone. This was mostly pleasant but pretty peculiar.

Anything else you would like viewers to know about you?
The only other thing I guess I would like viewers to know about me is that I am not quite as boring as I sound.
