2ND F – Fellowship

Get to Know Your AOQs:

Birth Name:Brandon Michael Contreras
F3 Name:Slater
What’s the story behind your F3 name?I told the guys I was half Mexican and from California, and some other things. But apparently the kid thirties crowd won with the Saved by the Bell throwback.
What’s the best piece of advice someone has given you?Other than my faith, I would have to say Boudreaux telling me I NEEDED F3 during the summer of my divorce. I didn’t know how formative being part of an early morning fitness group could be.
If you were an action figure, what accessories would you be sold with?La Bandera and Chorizo burritos
What is something that you’re really good at, that is embarrasing? Not embarrassing, but I used to be an amazing trumpet player through college and am known now for my whistling skills.
What is one thing you’ve done that you will never do again?Get divorced (God willing).
How many languages do you speak?Almost 3 (English and some Spanish and Turkish)
What was your first job?When I was 12 or 13, my parents owned a snow cone shack that my sister and I would run in the afternoons. It’s amazing how many people loved pickle snow cones.
What is the strongest animal you could win against?I’ve killed lots of Black Widows in my life and their venom is pretty bad. 
What would be the worst thing to put into a piñata?Spiders.
What are you most thankful for?My kids. There are four of them and they are what keep me going.
