wervyn1.Full Name – James (Wervyn) Wert

2. Where were you born? – Right here in Atlanta, GA.

3. How long have you been at Intown? – Approximately 30 years, technically minus a few when I didn’t live in Atlanta.

4. What’s your favorite ice cream?– Cookies and Cream

5. If you could travel anywhere, where would it be? – Another trip to Japan, it’s fun there.

6. Dream car? A Tesla sedan, preferably once they’ve gotten automatic driving built into them.

7. Dream job? – What I’m doing right now is pretty close. Software engineering for a small company in an innovative field (usable, data-driven cryptography), in a work environment that prioritizes creativity and understands that developers are vital to success — take care of them.

8. If you could have a drink with anyone in the world (dead or alive), who would it be? – C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the rest of the Inklings no one bothers to remember, at the Eagle and Child.

9. Best day of your life? Many, but marrying my wife is a particular highlight and makes a good soundbyte.

10. What’s your favorite thing about Becca? Her incredible modesty. She would NEVER fish for a compliment.  But seriously, probably her energy and enthusiasm for reaching kids.

11. Why are you working with IDX? – In some sense, it just really called to me and I don’t fully know why. More concretely, I think I have insight to offer about growing up to teens, I want to help kids through that time, and I want to give back in the way that I was ministered to through the Intown youth group when I was that age.
