What is the best thing about being a student at Richards?
The extracurricular activities. There is something for everyone, and it gives you opportunities to see your friends more often.
What is your favorite subject?
Honestly, gym. Being cramped up in desks is not my thing.
Do you participate in any clubs, sports or other extracurricular activites?
I play volleyball in the spring. Speech team and improv, and I was in the fall play. I'm also in Boy Scouts and play for the worship band at church.
Do you know what you want to do for a living?
Not a clue. Maybe something involving art or music, possibly teaching.
When do you do when not in school?
Playing my drums, seeing friends, or just relaxing.
Do you have any role models?
My older friend, John. He's just so passionate about everything he does and is easy to talk to.
If you could visit one place on Earth, where would it be?
Alaska! I love mountains, snow, and trees.
What is something you can't do without?
Snow. If we have another dry winter, I'm moving to Colorado.
Name one person, living or dead, with whom you would like to have a conversation?
Will Farrell. I feel we would become best friends.
Reveal something about yourself other people may consider strange.
I keep a framed picture of Jesus in the back of my car at all times. Just in case.
