1) What makes you happy?
Hanging out with friends and doing things around SLO, or just relaxing at home on the couch playing video games doing nothing. I’m easy to please.

2) What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I once met Burt Reynolds at a golf tournament when I was 10.

3) Share your favorite memory working for ASI.
Working as a field supervisor last summer, all the fun summer camp events that we worked at the fields, and all the great sunsets I got to see while closing up the fields.

4) What’s the best place you’ve traveled to and why?
The Bahamas. The warm, clear ocean water and the beautiful views wherever you look made it such a great place, plus most things are cheaper to experience there. Canada is a close second.

5) Where's your favorite spot in SLO?
Montaña de Oro/Los Osos.

6) If you could create a slogan for your life, what would it be?
If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll end up somewhere else.

7) What’s on your bucket list?
Some of the goals at the top of my bucket list are to travel to every continent, to go to a championship game for the MLB, NHL, NFL, and NBA, and to play Augusta National once.

8) What are you most passionate about?
Doing good in life and in business along with helping the people around me succeed with me.

9) What do you hope to achieve after you graduate?
I’m hoping to eventually create my own business consulting firm specializing in wineries and wine production to help struggling wineries fix their problems.

10) What advice would you give to students interested in working for ASI?
Apply for every job that even sounds remotely interesting to you, there really are no bad jobs at ASI. It’s such a great work environment for students. You’ll have a great time no matter what job you have.
