1. What was your first job?Everyone’s favorite occupation: a grill cook at McDonald’s. And no, I don’t really eat there anymore unless necessity demands it.
2. What book are you currently reading?At present I am in the middle of a compelling Star Wars novel, Ruin. Yes, I am a Star Wars junkie. And Yes, this is the 103rd Star Wars novel I have read.
3. What is your dream vacation destination?Hmm, well I would have to say the French countryside (like Bayeux and Normandy). I went there in middle school and fell in love with the place. The scenery is beautiful and the history is rich.
4. Where are you most likely to be seen dining when you want a great meal?Oooo, I would have to say Clides in Ashburn, VA. Some of the best duck you’ll ever try.
6. What is one way you have seen serious growth in your faith as an adult?I would say through developing a consistent quiet time with God. Just by setting aside that time to pray and focus on what God has to say, I have seen my relationship with Him improve in a meaningful way.
7. What’s the most impacting story you read/watched in your youth?I would have to say the story of Sergeant York. I always admired the classic story of how God can convert and use even the most pagan of underdogs to do amazing things. If you haven’t read his autobiography, do it. Life changing.
8. What motivates you to continue when life gets crazy?All the little instances where I see God work. Mostly involving answers to prayers. I know that no matter how dire or trivial my circumstance, God hears my prayers and is always looking out for me.
10. What’s one piece of advice that has helped shape the course of your life?I hate to go cliché here, but it would have to be my life verse, Colossians 3:23. It says, “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as unto the Lord, and not to men…” This verse made me realize that I am representing Christ everywhere I go and to remember that God’s glory should always be my end goal.
