10 Questions with Jeff Frandsen

1. What is your name? Jeff Frandsen

2. How old are you? 23 years old

3. What do you do with your life? I'm a freelance photographer, I own and operate Jeff Frandsen Photography. I also have my own baseball blog, Half Mental.

4. What is your favorite activity? Watching baseball, especially the Mets. I watch at least an inning of over 125 baseball games a season.

5. Who is your greatest role model? My grandfather Don. Even though he passed away while I was in my early teens, to this day I remember all the values he pushed upon my life. Check nutrition labels, just a pinch of salt, never say "want," don't fart in public. The little things that made me the person who I am today. He worked for his whole life and dedicated himself to his family. And someday, I wish to cook as well as he did.

6. What is your greatest fear? Failure, which feeds from my perfectionist tendencies.

7. What are you most passionate about? Well that's easy. Photography and baseball. At any point in time, I can take the world, camera in hand, and prove that life is happening. And not only do I have the power to prove this, I am capable of uniquely and artistically telling the stories of the beautiful people around me. And being a Mets fan gives me my understanding of patience. I could rant for years about baseball, but let's just say I'm obsessed.

8. Where do you see yourself one year from today? From today? I see myself as happy. Busy, driven, motivated, inspired and just plain happy.

9. Who is your favorite person? Why? If I wanted to be funny I'd say my future wife. But in all honesty, I can't pinpoint ONE person to say is my favorite. I'm blessed to have the friends and family that I have today. Anyone that takes time out of their day to talk to me, get to know me, experience life with me is my favorite. So if that includes you, thanks.

10. What is your favorite quote? "Maxima enim..patientia virtus" or "patience is a virtue." I preach to others about patience and self control all the time, but struggle with it myself. When I was in high school, my best friend Jenna had told it to me and it has forever stood in my mind. Patience is a virtue.
