If your life had a soundtrack, what is your theme song?
“We Didn’t Start the Fire” – Billy Joel

Do you ever talk to yourself? If so, what do you say?
Before I make a phone call, I have to coach myself through what I’m going to say.

If you were an animal, what would you be? Why?
I would be a bee, because they are very smart and resourceful. They’re also a very democratic species with each bee having a say in overall hive responsibilities.

Sasquatch—real or fake?
Just because we don’t know if it’s real, that doesn’t mean it’s fake.

What is your most vivid memory from college?
Getting on the wrong bus while trying to go to East Campus and ending up on the other side of town.

What words of advice would you give an incoming student?
Don’t be afraid to try new things. Be bold and step outside of your comfort zone.
