MEET PAYSON

Q: If you could pick one donut to eat the rest of your life, what would you choose?
A: I love apple fritters so I’d have to say those. I know technically it isn’t a donut but its always in the same case as the donuts so in my mind I see it as a donut.

Q: Where were you born?
A: I was born at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Evanston, Illinois

Q: In one word how would you describe yourself?
A: Large

Q: What are you most excited about at the Iowa Events Center?
A: I am most excited about learning how to market so many different types of events, sports, and products all in one summer.

Q: What areas of the entertainment industry are you most passionate about?
A: Creating marketing photos and videos from various events is very intriguing to me. The entertainment industry is based on experience and emotions and being able to capture that and use it to sell other events is what I am passionate about.

Q: Would you prefer to drink beer, drink wine or eat food?
A: I’ve loved food my whole life so I have to stay true to the most loyal one.

Q: What accomplishment are you most proud of?
A: I was elected captain of both my High School and College football teams, and its really cool to have been chosen by my teammates to represent the team both times.

Q: If you could learn one skill, what would it be?
A: I really want to learn how to speak another language.

Q: What do you like to do in your free time?
A: I love travelling and exploring new areas. But really just spending any time outside that I can

Q: What is your favorite sports team?
A: Surprisingly enough I am a packer fan even though I spent most of my childhood in Chicago. My Dad grew up in Wisconsin and he made me a packer fan

Q: If you could meet one artist who would it be?
A: J. Cole. I love his music and he seems like a really down to earth dude

Q: What was your favorite Vacation?
A: I went on a January Term class (3 weeks) to the Bahamas where we learned about leadership and the history of the Bahamas in Nassau and then on a 130 foot tall ship (old sailboat) where we traveled around the Bahamas. Not only was the destination and sailing amazing, but the class got along unbelievably well that just added to the trip itself. It was an incredible experience that will be hard to match again in my lifetime.

Q: What is something you can not live without?
A: I know its cliche but my phone. Being able to be able to be in contact with nearly everyone at any time of the day, being able to answer any question I would ever want to know, and being able to capture pictures and videos in the matter of moments is something that is pretty incredible and I definitely would not live the same way without it.
