Why did you choose Champlain?

I went here for GIV and fell in love with the campus and wanted to stay pretty close to home while also feeling separated.

Do you have any quirky study habits?

I watch The Wolf of Wall Street over and over again.

You’ve created a fun, eccentric course at Champlain. What is it?

How not to suck at downhill skiing.

How closely do you align with your zodiac sign?

I just discovered that I’m a Gemini about 5 seconds ago, and it seems fitting.

What’s your favorite store to shop in?

Best Buy. I work there, and it’s almost impossible to not spend most of every paycheck there.

If you could be any fictional character—book, TV, or movie—who would you be and why?

Barney Stinson from How I Met Your Mother. He’s the man, if you know you know.

What’s your favorite breakfast food?

Johnny Crepe from Skinny Pancake if you can call that breakfast food.

Describe your perfect day:

Breakfast at Sneakers, long drive on curvy roads, lunch at Moe’s, evening on the boat and dinner at Vermont Pub and Brewery.

What are three words your mom would use to describe you?

Pain in a** (in a good way).

What’s something not many people know about you?

I have 13 nieces and nephews.
