When did you move to Hermiston?

January 9, 2018

What is your favorite place to eat in Hermiston?

Shiki Hibachi Sushi

What do you like to do in your spare time?

What is spare time? Just kidding, when and if I do, I like to cook and watch sports.

What surprises you about Hermiston?

How much it reminds me of how my hometown was 15 years ago (Harrisonburg, VA).

What was the last book you read?

”Leadership with Purpose” by Rick Warren

What app or website do you use most often?


If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?

Anywhere in Europe with amazing food (I live to eat and eat to live).

What is the funniest thing that’s happened to you?

I would say the funniest thing that happened to me is when I walked around Seattle all day without realizing my pants were ripped pretty wide and you could see my boxers underneath. Who knows how long or how many folks saw.

What is one of your goals for the next 12 months?

One of my goals is to make an impact and a difference to my community by being involved and serving its residents in any way possible.

What is your proudest accomplishment?

My proudest accomplishment has been helping a young boy with autism and social anxiety overcome his struggles. He was homeschooled and in special programs most of his life due to those difficulties, and we were able to work through those difficulties, and he can attend college and be in classes with other students of his age and needs.
