What do you like to do for fun?
I like to see new places with friends. I am always amazed by the variety and quality of little-known destinations for day trips around Birmingham and the South. When I’m not exploring, you can often find me deep in a book about history, politics, or Argentina.

Name and describe a memorable place you’ve been.
In college, I had the opportunity to study for a few weeks in Greece where I had what I will call my “mountaintop experience.” There is a mountain near Corinth called the Acrocorinth, and my classmates, professors, and I greatly enjoyed the view from the top, so much so that we spent way too much time there. Even though the views were spectacular on the trail, going down was not as enjoyable as being at the peak. It was getting late, and we were not finished touring for the day. Needless to say, we all decided to eat dinner early!

What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I enjoy listening to a wide range of music! I often switch between artists such as Billy Joel, Johnny Cash, and Astor Piazzolla (tango composer) within a very short amount of time.
