  • Music speaks to me in a way nothing else can, really. I love most genres of rock, mostly alternative rock. I also like to get T-shirts of bands I love to show my appreciation for them.

  • GCU is the college I plan to attend once I’m done with High School. I appreciate them for giving me a scholarship and enjoy the thought of getting a higher education there next school year.

  • The Horror genre fascinates me. I love the entire month of October because everything is focused on scary movies, scary games and scary costumes. I love it all.

  • Westerns. I love em, from Tombstone to Red Dead Redemption. I can’t get enough of the old west period of America.

  • I love photography, I find it very relaxing to be behind the lens taking photos. I usually just do nature and landscape photos because I don’t have to worry about the pressure of taking terrible pictures of people.

  • Grilled Cheese is my comfort food. I love making it; I love eating it. I don’t know what else to say.

  • Hot sauce is special to me for no reason really, I’m just obsessed with it. I’m not insane enough yet to enjoy the especially hot sauces but I still have them and tentatively use them… On everything.

  • The Pittsburgh Steelers are my favorite sports team. They might not be the most loved team but they’re always competitive and I know I can count on them to have a few standout players for me to cheer for. Now to wait for them to go out in the Divisional round this season after an 11-0 start.

  • One of my favorite places to go to is Prescott, Arizona. The surrounding area is all beautiful, unique and diverse. From small lakes to beautiful hills and nice houses. It’s a quaint little city and I love it there.

  • This picture combines two things I love. Sunsets and the Ocean. I find them both very calming and together it’s the most peaceful thing I can think of. Unfortunately, the ocean is hours away but I still love it.
