    Favorite tv show: Parks and Rec, Ron Swanson is the man!! I also love Criminal Minds and Burn Notice.

    Favorite Food: Fish Tacos…..it is even better if I get to do the fishing beforehand.

    Interesting Fact or Talent: I played collegiate soccer for four years and loved it. I was usually the smallest player on the field by about a foot so I rarely ever had calls go against me. You can’t help but feel bad for the little guy!! Also within the right context I will eat almost anything on a dare.

    Celebrity Look Alike: I have heard James Franco especially in Batman but also a Disney Channel actor named Kent Boyd….look it up, it’s crazy!!

    If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go: I would love to travel all over the place with my wife and son Easton. I eventually want to visit all the major national parks in the United States especially “Glacier National Park” in Montana. We have done a pretty good job so far at covering the southern National Parks. If I could go one place I would love to visit Scotland and hopefully look up some family heritage.

    If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? I haven't been to Italy or Ireland yet so it would be one of those.  I guess I would have to lean against the leaning tower of Pisa in Italy and kiss leprechauns in Ireland or is that, kiss the Blarney Stone?

    If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? I have been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel to some of my dream destinations (Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Greece and the Greek Islands, Turkey, Canada and many memorable trips to Mexico).  Next stop...Barcelona, Spain or the fabulous beaches of the French Polynesian.

    Interesting Fact or Talent: I played collegiate soccer and have had four surgeries because of it- but my time playing and friends made was worth every single one! Also, I might be throwing myself under the bus here, but if you ask me, I can rap the Bon Qui Qui song for you… And I’m sure most parents will have no idea what I am even talking about!

    Celebrity Lookalike: Amy Adams, aka Giselle from the movie Enchanted. My friends say I not only look just like her, but embarrassingly enough, I also act like the part she plays in Enchanted! At least I will always have an easy go-to Halloween costume.

    If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? I would go back to KENYA. I met my husband on a mission trip to Kenya in 2012 and have been in love with the country and the people in it ever since! My husband and I want to do international missions, so hopefully we will be traveling all over the world one day. In the context of vacation, I have also always wanted to go somewhere with really huge WAVES- maybe Hawaii? The waves and the ocean in general always seems to fascinate me and also point me to God’s infinite power!
