My proudest sports moment is: Crossing the finish line at last year's UAlbany Invitational and realizing just how dramatically I have improved since my freshman year
My favorite class at Siena is: The 4th, 5th and 6th Amendments with Dr. Cutler
My favorite thing about Siena is: The people; it is a tight knit community and the kind of place where you build friendships that last a lifetime.
Career Plans: After graduating I hope to continue on to law school. I would like to be a practicing attorney as well as be active in the political arena.
I chose Siena because: It is small enough that there are academic and social advantages you wouldn't find at a larger school.
In my spare time, I like to: Read; I am always reading a new book as well as writing. I enjoy writing about anything from politics to writing stand-up comedy. I also listen to a lot of music. I am an avid Springsteen and Beatles fan.
