What is your strategy going into the game? What I will use to my advantage in the game: 1) my ability to connect and relate 2) my competitive nature, athleticism, and physicality when it comes to challenges 3) I have studied the human brain and human behavior, so I understand how people work 4) I am really good at rallying people together and creating a sense of community/inclusivity, so I will be able to band people together

What type of personalities would you describe as opposite of yours? Soft, quiet, boring, weak, timid, arrogant, passive- aggressive, complainers.

Favorite Sequester player: Kahlen. Honestly... he seemed not as crazy / petty as everyone else. He was a good balance between the people who would freak out at every little thing versus those who were floaters. I liked how he seemed to be a people person and get along with a majority of the other players. He didn’t let his emotions get the best of him when making decisions. Also he had good style!

What would you say your biggest weakness is in a game like Sequester? I am a big optimist. I always believe in looking on the bright side of things. In life, this has caused me to be ignorant in some situations when it comes to people with ill- intentions. I always want to give people the benefit of the doubt. However, in a game like Sequester, I'll have to read someone BEFORE they cross me, otherwise it will be too late. Aka I am an inherently trusting person.

What do you think is the most common mistake that people make in a game like this? Jumping from alliance to alliance; as a viewer, it is way more interesting to see people continually jump ship and switch alliances and break trust and blind side others, but from the perspective of a player, the best strategy to get you to the end is to establish trust as quickly as possible with a particular group of people and then NO ONE JUMP SHIP until it's only that group of players left, and then it becomes every man for himself/herself.
