Tough, there is a lot of good places, but hard to beat Hales, for the hometown Hermiston tradition.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I love hunting, fishing, camping, or just being with my family.
What surprises you about Hermiston?
Just how much it’s changed, developed, and grown since I was a kid growing up here. It is exciting to see and be a part of so much progress and where we are headed as a community.
What was the last book you read?
The “Jack Reacher” series by Lee Child.
What website or app do you use most other than Facebook?
I like to use Twitter for news and sports information.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
Hawaii with my family.
What is the funniest thing that’s ever happened to you?
Probably getting asked to be a part of 2020 Hermiston Dancing with the Stars for anyone that has ever seen me dance, or perhaps attempt to dance, in my life... (For photos of Christianson’s win on Saturday, see Page A11)
What is one of your goals for the next 12 months?
I hope to continue to work hard to grow and develop my company, Christianson Realty Group, while supporting all the brokers that work with me in each of their individual career goals.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
Without question, my family. My beautiful wife Rylee and our three amazing kids, Mia (5), Kalli (3) and Luke (1). They’re an incredible, daily blessing to me.
