Since I was about three years old
What is your favorite thing about the sport?
It never stops challenging you...you can always do something better or learn a new skill
What is your favorite event, and why?
Beam...always has been; just the feeling I get when I make a beam set, whether it's in practice or in competition, there's nothing like it.
What is your favorite thing to do outside of the gym, and why?
Relax...lay in the sun, read, go camping...anything outdoors really since we're stuck inside with our sport
What is your current favorite movie?
Hmm...I can't really think of anything off the top of my head, but really any kind of comedy along the lines of Dumb and Dumber (stupid humor is preferred)
Name the last five songs you played on your iPod:
She's Everything - Brad Paisley, Angel - Shaggy, Honeybee - Blake Shelton, Just to See You Smile - Tim McGraw, The Way You Do the Things You Do - UB40

"Sorry" - I used to play it all the time with my family growing up

My iPod, a book, my bathing suit, sunscreen and a towel - I may as well make a day of it right?
What is your dream job?
My dream job would be running some type of nonprofit to help people. Hopefully one day I can save up enough to get one started. I don't think there is anything more rewarding than helping others without asking anything in return.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Unfortunately I haven't traveled very much but I'd say anywhere with a beach would be fantastic
What do you hope to do after graduation?
Get a job, a house, and once I get some money saved up travel somewhere out of the country besides Mexico (thats the only place I've been out of the country thus far)
