Face Time Justin Sechrest

Batavia resident Justin Sechrest, 31, was at Bethany Lutheran Church in Batavia when he answered 11 questions for the Kane County Chronicle’s Brenda Schory.

Where did you grow up? Batavia

Pets? A calico cat named Hershey.

Who would play you in the movie of your life? Leonardo DiCaprio

First job? Paper route. I delivered the BeaconNews at The Holmstad. It was the best paper route you could have because it was indoors.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be an architect, and I am somewhat because I am a quality engineer.

A book you’d recommend? I think all little kids should read “Hatchet” by Gary Paulsen.

What is your guilty pleasure? Sleeping in

Favorite charity? WaterWheel Foundation, a charity created by Phish in 1997 to oversee the band’s charitable activities. It raises funds for local charities in each community where they perform.

Hobbies? I love to go to concerts of jam bands.

Favorite local restaurant? El Taco Grande in Batavia

What is an interesting factoid about yourself? I have been to every state to go to Phish concerts.
