What do you like to do for fun?
I like to photograph anything and everything, I like to go on walks, and I like to go to the movies.

What is your favorite quote from a movie?
“Great moments are born from great opportunity and that’s what you have here, tonight boys. That’s what you’ve earned here tonight. One game, if we played em’ ten times, they might win nine, but not this game, not tonight. Tonight, we skate with them. Tonight we stay with them and we shut them down, because we can. Tonight we are the greatest hockey team in the world. You were born to be hockey players, every one of you. And you were meant to be here tonight. This is your time. Their time is done. It’s over…This is your time. Now go out there and take it.”
-Kurt Russell playing Herb Brooks in Miracle

What is something most people don’t know about you?
Most people do not know that I still have a baby tooth, which I will have until I am about forty.

What is one of the most meaningful experiences you had in college?
In college, one of the most meaningful extracurricular activities I participated in was the Backpack Journalism program, where a group of around twenty students went to the border of the U.S. and Mexico to create a documentary. This experience helped me understand and better visualize immigration, a large and complex issue affecting thousands of people, and then document what I saw.
