What made you choose to come to Hawaii?

To get rid of the snow and hang out in the sun. And to become a professional surfer…that’s not really happening.


What did you want to be when you were little?

I wanted to be everything! I guess I wanted to be a medic in the Army for a really long time.


If you could live in any time period, what would it be?

Time of the knights, like middle ages. I want to joust and hit people with swords. Anytime where there’s knights.


What types of things do you like to do on your free time?

Hiking, adventuring, surfing, swimming, anything outside.


If money wasn’t an issue, what’s something you would really like to do?

Travel to every single country in the world.


What’s your favorite Olympic sport and why?

Well, that’s an easy one. That would be luge because I did luge for 14 years, and I was two spots away from making the games. I raced at the Olympic level for four years.


What’s something that terrifies you?

Bees and sea urchins. Pokey things.


If you could go to any awards show, what would it be?

The ESPYS because I like sports.


Who’s your favorite celebrity?

Russell Brand.


What type of music do you listen to?

I listen to everything, absolutely everything. There’s no music I don’t like, except maybe the mainstream hip-hop; that can get pretty annoying.


What do you usually order at restaurants?

I would say any really good meat plate dinner. Ribs are my favorite.


What’s your favorite animal?

Penguins, monkeys, and moose.


If you were anyone or anything in a past life, who or what do you think it would be?

That’s a hard question. Hmmm, I was a knight, that’s what I was.


What’s your favorite season?

It used to be winter, but I would have to say fall.


What’s the one thing you miss the most about home?

Well that’s easy, my family.
