Why I fell for Star Wars: I fell in love with Star Wars because it is such a fantastic Saga that appeals to and bridges so many generations of fans. It immerses us all into a world of wonder and unknowns that inspires us to not only look to the stars and dream of exploration, but also compels us to look within ourselves to find our inner light or darkness.
Favorite part of the Job:My favorite part of the Job is giving back to an organization that gives so much to people in need. The Star Wars community as a whole has become a family to me, and like a family, it has been there for me in good times and bad. I enjoy the job because I feel that I have a lot to give, I enjoying helping others, and I want to see our community continue to grow. Because of this, I share my knowledge with others so they can become our future leaders and build on the foundation the we are building today. A wise Jedi once said “Always pass on what you learned” (Yoda. Return of the Jedi).
Favorite Movie: Tough one, but The Last Jedi because I really like the twists and turns that the new Saga is taking us on. It continues to surprise me and take me down a path I am enjoying.
Favorite Character: Obi-Wan Kenobi
Favorite Costume: Kylo Ren
