How old are you, where are you from?
I’m 26 and from Texas. Good ol’ Southern boy.
What is your heritage/ethnic background?
My mother is Italian/Japanese and my dad is black. Super random I know, but it works. Haha.
Have you ever had a nickname? What is it?
So my first name is actually Kendall. Levi is my middle name. So growing up my friends and family called me Kenny.
What irrational fear do you have?
I don’t know if this is necessarily a fear, but I HATE ketchup. I have no idea why or if I’ve ever even tasted it. All I know is I despise it. Haha.
Are you usually early or late?
I’m always annoyingly early. I actually keep snacks in my car to eat when I get places too early so that I don’t starve.
What song would you say best sums you up?
Livewire by Mötley Crüe. Hands down.
Who’s your go to band or artist when you can’t decide on something to listen to?
I’m actually a little emo kid at heart so pretty much anything Linkin Park gets me in my feelings. Haha. I also love Beyoncé. Obviously.
Do you like or dislike surprises? Why or why not?
I love surprises. I’m pretty intuitive and extremely nosey so it’s hard to surprise me, but when it happens, it’s amazing. Unfortunately, I have an ugly “surprise face” that’s often documented in photos and videos but it’s all worth it in the end.
In the evening, would you rather play a game, visit a relative, watch a movie, or read?
Movies all day all night. I go see at least one movie a week. I love the cinema. I love to immerse myself in other worlds. It makes me feel limitless.
Aside from necessities, what one thing could you not go a day without?
Coffee is probably my biggest vice. I consider myself a connoisseur of coffee shops in LA. I know all the spots so hit me up if you need guidance. 😉
What game or movie universe would you most like to live in?
I would love to live in the Transformers world. I love cars and I love technology. So mixing the two of those with epic action and excitement would be heaven for me.
What one thing do you really want but can’t afford?
Probably a house. Also a CrossFit Membership. But hey, one thing at a time…
What website do you visit most often?
Probably YouTube. It’s most likely a tie between YouTube and something I’d rather not say…so we’ll say YouTube.
What’s the best way to start the day?
I usually stretch, meditate, make breakfast (I love to cook) and then have a coffee and bother my housemate. I get bored easily.
What do you wish you knew more about?
History. I’m a big history nerd but I could always learn more. What better way to grow than to know what has come before you.
How different was your life one year ago?
Well for one thing, I was in a relationship. But that’s over now. I’m way more focused on my career and bettering myself. It was all worth it.
Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
My friends would probably describe me as an extrovert because I am naturally social and love meeting new people. But at the end of the day, I really do enjoy my alone time. It allows me to regroup and recharge for a new day.
Which of the five senses would you say is your strongest?
I have literally no sense of smell or taste. So those two are out. My optometrist says I don’t need glasses so probably sight?
What is one thing you will never do again?
Date a coworker. Jesus…
