What do you do for fun?

Anything related to sports. I am a die-hard fan of most sports, and SportCenter is always on my television. I mainly root for my hometown teams and must attend games frequently.

What are your favorite things to do in Chicago?

I love to explore the city of Chicago. I lived here my entire life and I still look for new areas that I have never visited to get a new experience. My favorite area is the Loop because amazing things happen there daily.

What is your favorite season in Chicago? Why?

It would have to be fall. Fall offers the best weather because it's not too hot or cold. There are fewer weather elements to deal with. And most importantly football season is back on TV! You can't beat that.

What is your favorite story from SXU history?

I love to walk past with the bell that survived the 1871 Great Chicago Fire. I am a huge history buff and knowing SXU survived the incredible blaze is amazing alone. So every time I see a piece of history from the fire, I get excited to learn about it.

Cubs or Sox?

I am a diehard Chicago White Sox fan.

The best thing about SXU is?

The level of care we offer our students. At SXU, faculty and staff genuinely want to see students succeed.

Favorite television show?

My favorite television show is LOST. LOST offered me an amazing adventure for six seasons where I grew with the characters and it felt like a family. To this day any episode of LOST can send chills down my spine.

What's a favorite memory of your college years at Saint Xavier?

I really enjoyed my years as a resident assistant. It was an awesome adventure where I was able to interact with residents and create many fun events for them. While being a resident assistant, I was able to learn many things about SXU, students and myself.
