Rumor has it that you dream about being on the TV reality show "Survivor". What interests you most about that show? "I LOVE Survivor. Some would say I'm a super fan; if you qualify a super fan as one that watches every season and has applied to be on the show twice, then yes, I'm a super fan! I love thephysical challenge of the game (being stuck on a island for 40 days sounds pretty hard). I love the strategic nature of the game. Things are always changing, forcing players to adjust their strategy at any moment. And I love the social nature of the game. In order to win, the people on the island have to like you on some level, but not feelcompletely threatened by you. It is a strategic social game unlike anything I've seen on reality TV. You should watch it if you get a chance!"

What got you interested in film making? "Growing up, my family watched many, many of the old classic films from directors like Cecil B DeMille, Alfred Hitchcock, and Orson Welles.

How did you first get involved with Campus Outreach? "When I was a junior at Liberty University, I wandered into Rivermont Presbyterian Church where the college hour met for Sunday school.

all the moments that are a byproduct of playing the game: the long bus rides, the victories, thedefeats, the pain, the joy, the camaraderie. There's really no substitute for these memories. They are precious to me."
If you where on an island, and you could have either the film,”Home Alone” or the novel “To Kill a Mockingbird”, which would you choose? "This is so hard! I love books and movies with great and equal affection! But, if I had to choose one, I'd probably like to spend my days on an island reading "To Kill a Mockingbird". That is one adventure I don't mind diving back into over and over again."
What are three words that describe you? "Joyful, Caring and Curious."
