What does Legion M mean to you?

Do you have a favorite book you’ve read? Or favorite author?
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline & Elon Musk by Ashlee Vance
What is your first memory of seeing a film?
Would have to be Star Wars Episode IV while I was in the infectious disease pediatric ward unknowing what was to come. After seeing another young man overcome immense odds, it gave me hope that I too could conquer what I was battling.
If you could live the life of any one person (living or dead) for 48 hrs, who would you want to be?
Nikola Tesla b/c the rumors of what that man was able to accomplish is astounding.
What, in your definition, is the craziest thing you’ve ever done in your life so far?
Sporting a Rainbow Mohawk at a very conservative school as a dare after successfully raising over $3,500 to help Engineers Without Borders build bathrooms in a Honduran School.
Do you have a favorite Director or Actor whose work you admire and gravitate towards?
Absolutely love Mark Hamill, not just for his depiction of Luke Skywalker but also his diverse voice acting as the Joker, Trickster, and more. Director would be Steven Spielberg, there's not many that have directed so many notable and challenging films such as him; especially Ready Player One w/ the complete reimagineering of multiple classics.
What story would you love to see adapted to film that hasn’t already been done? How about one that was a total fail that you wish someone else would take a stab at?
The Magic Treehouse book series or the rest of the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan and his Roman series would be great either like Lord of The Rings style or episodics on Netflix. The last Percy Jackson film - Sea of Monsters was a big disappointment and would love to see it remade in a few years.
What one living person would you love the opportunity to have lunch with one day if you could and why?
Elon Musk all the way; there's no other person that I'm aware of that is so in touch with the many issues plaguing our world today that also creates ingenuitive solutions and is able to prove so many naysayers wrong. His origin story fascinates me and he continues to surprise many with his plethora of endeavors that don't aim to make profit its main goal but the betterment of the human race.
If you were stuck on a desert island, which three films would you take with you?
This is a tough one; Star Wars Episode IV b/c it's my all time fav, closely followed by The Matrix but since I can only do three, I guess I'd do the Lord of the Rings trilogy extended editions to help pass the time... haha.
Same desert island, name your favorite tv series of all time that you'd want playing on loop?
The original Stargate SG-1, The Flash, & How I Met Your Mother would be my choices.
