In The Easy Chair: Lee Eastbourne


AGE 30.

OCCUPATION Operations and marketing manager at the Chorus of Westerly.

RESIDENCE Gales Ferry.

BORN, RAISED & GREW UP IN Bradford, England.

FAVORITE WAY TO SPEND MY TIME Anything that involves being able to spend time with family and close friends. Summers at the beach and trips to Vermont and New Hampshire rank highly.

PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT Becoming a father for the first time last September.

WHAT I HOPE TO BE REMEMBERED FOR Being a loving husband and father, as well as a loyal, dedicated and hardworking person.

TOP ITEM ON MY BUCKET LIST To travel the world.

ALWAYS IN MY POCKET Wallet and cellphone.

WHAT I WANTED TO BE WHEN I GREW UP A professional soccer player.

PERSON OR EXPERIENCE THAT HAS INFLUENCED ME THE MOST My wife and my parents. Both have taught me valuable life lessons.

FAVORITE AUTHOR Andy McNab.

LAST BOOK READ “Fowler, My Autobiography,” by Robbie Fowler.

FAVORITE SONG “Let It Be,” by the Beatles.

FAVORITE MOVIE “Hannibal.”

FAVORITE TV SHOW “The Walking Dead.”

FAVORITE PET Our cat, Cheeto.

FAVORITE FOOD A good steak or burger.

AMOUNT OF TIME I SPEND A DAY ON FACEBOOK Quite a bit! Living several thousand miles from family and childhood friends, it’s a great way to stay in contact with them. Add to that the social networking I do as part of my job at the Chorus, and it certainly takes up a chunk of my time!

TRAIT I MOST ADMIRE Loyalty.

PET PEEVE Dishonesty.

FAVORITE QUOTATION “It’s a brand new day. Live in the now, it will be gone before you know it” — Rodger Halston

MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT OUR LITTLE CORNER OF THE WORLD The quality of life and the fact we are just a few minutes to the coast and a couple of hours from the mountains.

CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT My wife, Jennifer, and daughter, Emmeline.

LITTLE-KNOWN FACT ABOUT ME My original plan was to be in the U.S. for 10 weeks — that was back in 2004! A chance meeting with Jennifer changed my life forever.

BEST ADVICE I’VE EVER RECEIVED Live your own life, not through somebody else.

ADVICE I BEST LIKE TO GIVE Don’t worry.

IF I RULED THE WORLD I WOULD I would make happiness mandatory.

IF I WON THE LOTTERY, THE FIRST THING I WOULD DO IS Take care of those closest to me, and travel back home to England a lot more.

I DRIVE A Red 2006 Nissan Sentra.

I WISH I DROVE A Lotus Exige.

ALWAYS IN MY FRIDGE Milk.

IF I COULD HAVE DINNER AND A CONVERSATION WITH ANYONE IN THE WORLD I WOULD CHOOSE Winston Churchill.
