Where do you call home?

I'm originally from Houston, but I've lived in Waco for about two years now. My family also has some land near Austin, so let's just say I call Texas home.

What do you do in Waco?

Work as a propulsion test engineer at SpaceX.

What do you love most about UBC?

I love the open and honest atmosphere at UBC. It's a welcoming place where people can feel free to be themselves. It's full of people interested in engaging in genuine conversation about how we can be more like Christ.

Favorite Movie?

Gran Torino.


J. R. R. Tolkien.

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

An astronaut.

What do you want to be now when you grow up?

An astronaut, or do whatever I can to help us explore the crazy big universe that God made (it's out there waiting for us!).

Favorite artist/band/musician?

Arcade Fire, Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers, Of Monsters and Men, Coldplay, U2 (hard to choose just one.)

Best Burger in Waco?

Health Camp!

What do we HAVE to know about you to really know you?

I love trying new things. It helps me keep perspective and keeps life interesting. Also, playing musical instruments is one of my favorite hobbies: mainly piano/keyboard and guitar.

Favorite YouTube video?

My favorite YouTube video is a performance of one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite bands. It's a song about a man struggling to find God's will and ultimately realizing that he's failed to find it (my generalized interpretation of the lyrics). He also engages in a bit of hyperbole (exaggeration for effect) at the end. Anyway, watch it, don't watch it, love it, hate it, feel indifferent about it; just make up your own mind and don't take my word for it. It's called Antichrist Television Blues, and it's by Arcade Fire:
