Hometown: Missouri Valley, IA
College: Macalester College, B.A.; University of Edinburgh, M.Th.
People you looked up to most as a child: I really admired Walter Payton and Larry Bird.
Favorite food: Any combination of meat and potatoes
Perfect Day: It would be a combination of exploring nature (hiking in the mountains or hanging out by a very large body of water), and playing all of the sports with loved ones (bean bag toss, pick-up basketball, touch rugby, etc.). Then, I would end the day with good conversation around a fire.
Favorite sports moment: When I played football at Macalester we beat Illinois College on a last minute field goal to win the conference championship and clinch the first playoff berth in Macalester history.
Favorite Bible verse: "For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, 'Abba! Father!'" Romans 8:15
