1. Where did you grow up?

Ventura County in Southern California.

One of my favorite verses is Romans 12:18.

I think this is the best “one verse” summary of peacemaking in the Bible.

“Avatar.”

It poignantly illustrates the challenges of bridge building with a different people.

4. Who are three of the people you admire?

Jesus Christ, Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela.

5. What is one little known fact about yourself?

I love animals, having grown up with mountain lions, monkeys and honey bears in my back yard.
