Industry Spotlight – Ernest Beck

What is your life verse and why?
I’ve always been partial to Isaiah 40:31. There are a number of pieces to it, about trusting God, knowing God’s timing isn’t my timing, and the assurance it gives. Also I hate running, and running without getting tired sounds pretty sweet to me.


Favorite ice cream flavor?
The kind that have real cherries in it OR a nice peanut butter/chocolate ribbon


Who’s your hero?
It feels like a cop-out, but I don’t know that I have a hero per say. I greatly admire those that selflessly put others before themselves – not simply because it’s their job, but because that’s who they are.


How many hours of sleep do you need?
More than I get. 9 is a good number.


If you could eat one meal for the rest of your life what would it be?
I’d go nuts, because I like variety, but a favorite is Japanese Curry & Rice


Currently: Baseball Cards


Worst gift you’ve ever received?
Honestly, can’t think of one. Even some of the ‘tacky’ gifts had some meaning.


How many pairs of shoes do you own?


What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
I ate a dish that was supposedly deer in Cambodia. Not sure if it was deer or something entirely else. It tasted good though. Not as weird, but not as common – reindeer sausage was really good.


Toilet paper: over or under?
Why is this even a debate? Over.


On a scale of 1-10, how funny would you say you are?
Solid 2.

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
