10 Questions with Eddie White

February 22, 2018

Born and raised in Mooresville, North Carolina, Eddie White is a “travelin’ man.” As a logistics coordinator, Eddie is responsible for safely transporting CSM Production’s event experiences all over the United States and Canada.

His original desire was to work on cars for a living but was lured into driving trucks instead. Eddie’s passion remains American muscle cars with a dream of owning a 1992 Camaro with 2,000 horsepower!

The family man enjoys fishing, working on cars and soaking up as much R&R with his wife and son. Read more to hear about his trip to Hawaii and who inspires him most.

  1. At the 2016 Dog and Pony Awards, you were honored by your peers with the Unsung Hero Award. What does this mean to you? 
    • Being named the Unsung Hero is a privilege. It means to me being able to help my fellow workers out and make things easier for all. 
  2.  This year you also earned the safe driver award. What does it entail to be a safe driver?
    • Being safe while out on the road is a big responsibility. I do everything possible to make sure I am not in an incident or don’t cause an incident. Plus, making sure all of my paperwork is right and complete is important.
  3. What’s your favorite trip while at CSM?
    • My favorite trip at CSM is anywhere out west. I think it’s nice out that way (as long as the temperature is tolerable). I would like to eventually head northwest and the upper Midwest. That’s the only part of the continental country I haven’t been.
  4. You have a beautiful wife and boy. What’s the best lesson learned as a husband and father?
    • The best lesson learned is not to take the time you have for granted. The time I’m at home, I try to spend as much of it with my family. It just hit me the other day what I have missed out on. 
  5. You just returned from Hawaii on vacation. What was your favorite part of the trip?
    • Other than the givens - Pearl Harbor and other touristy things - walking around, adventuring and seeing the pretty fish in their natural habitat! Not the ballistic missile threat!
  6. What’s your biggest fear?
    • I have two. First, losing my family. Second, driving off a bridge into water.
  7. Biggest pet peeve
    • My biggest pet peeve is stuff being out of place.
  8. Who inspires you?
    • The person that inspired me was my Papaw Brown. Even as he got older, he would horseplay a lot. Plus, he drove trucks. He was always a jokester!
  9. What in the world is with skinny jeans? What’s your opinion on the subject?
    • I personally think they should be for women to wear. I know that sounds sexist, but I don’t think a man should wear them. I know that guys like them, but I don’t care for them. I have also watched guys wear them out here working; it has hindered them from working.
  10. What question should we ask the next 10 questions participant?
    • What is your dream vacation? Mine would be to go to Alaska and go halibut fishing. That is on my bucket list.
