7 Things You Didn’t Know About Howie!

Yesterday I was on the set shooting a video for a fun new PCH experience (more on that another time!), and I got to hang around with one of my favorite people, Howie Guja of the PCH Prize Patrol!

We were going over our lines with PCH’s own “Spin Doctor” when I realized that many of our Publishers Clearing House fans out there might not know everything there is to know about the one and only Howie!

Howie Is Funny!

You see his excitement on winning moments, and he’s always quick with a hug for the winner. But did you know he’s quite the cut up? Actually, everyone on the Prize Patrol family has a great sense of humor, and Howie fits right in!

Howie Is Talented!

Along the same lines, Howie can do impressions! Whether it’s physical comedy or doing someone’s voice, it just seems to appear out of nowhere and puts you in stitches.

Howie Is An Artist!

We’ve told you before about Howie’s ability with a guitar, but did you know he’s an artist as well? In his free time, Howie loves to use image editing software to make pictures pop, and that’s how he actually got his start here at PCH!

Howie Doesn’t Use A Mouse!

…and because of Howie’s years of doing photo-work, he hates using a mouse! When he’s at his desktop, he exclusively uses a large digital pad and pen for all of his work. You might not even notice it at first, but it’s quite a sight when you first see it! Honestly, I’m not sure how he does it!

Howie Documents His Travels

As I said before, Howie is quite the photographer. When he’s out and about traveling for the Prize Patrol, he LOVES tracking down beautiful old homes to document in photographs!

Howie Is A Night Owl!

…and whenever you’re on the road with Howie, be prepared to be out for a while! Howie loves to explore whatever town he’s in, whether it’s with the rest of the team or flying solo. But one thing’s for sure, he might be out late doing it!

Whew, that’s a lot of Howie! He’s a great guy and a good friend to all of us here at Publishers Clearing House. If you’d like to meet him, you should enter! That’s probably the best way to try and get him to your door!
