Your adventure starts...where?
I would honestly go just about anywhere (obviously Australia would be an amazing experience) but if there was ever an opportunity to go to Japan, I would just love it! Japan seems like a fun fast paced environment, but there is still a lot of old traditional culture that is so different from ours and it would be so fun to learn more about it.

A great moment for you:
I grew up in Eugene, Oregon and just like everybody else there, I have been a huge University of Oregon fan my entire life. After playing football in high school I tried out for the Oregon football team as a walk-on, and when I got the call the next morning that I had made the team, it was like a dream come true.

Your passions outside of work:
I am basically normal guy, I love watching sports, playing sports and being active. One of the best parts of my day is going to the gym to workout, play racquetball, pick-up basketball, etc. And I am also an avid sneaker collector.

A quote that inspires you:
"What you do today can improve all of your tomorrows" - Ralph Marston

Why I live in Utah:
I transferred from the University of Oregon to Utah State for football and I have been loving it here ever since.

Best place I've lived:
Estonia! Between the culture and the language, it was awesome!

Firs job:
In high school I was a maintenance guy at a couple apartment complexes. When tenants would move out, I would get the apartment ready for the next renters (paint the walls, shampoo the carpets, patch holes, clean the bathrooms, kitchen, etc.).
