Tell us about yourself!
I’m a non-traditional student with a background in web-development and journalism. I enjoy cooking and video games, but not cooking video games. There is a rumor that I watch anime. I will not confirm this. I have seen Anthrax and Billy Ray Cyrus in concert, though not on the same night. I once strung a car engine to the overhanging branch of a maple tree.
Why did you choose Lehigh?
Nearly all of the professors I worked close with at Kutztown University are Lehigh alumni. That alone put it as my top choice.
What is your favorite book outside your field of study?
My favorite books are the Discworld novels by Sir Terry Pratchett. Most of my worldview comes from this series. Since his passing, I still haven’t read the last book. That way there will always be another Discworld book to read.
What are you most looking forward to this year?
I’m most looking forward to developing as an instructor, seeing where my strengths and weaknesses lie, and discovering exactly what kind of teacher I am. Right now I’m somewhere between “Absent-Minded Professor” and Batman.
