What is your favorite place on campus?

My favorite place on campus would have to be the bench on the back side of Lake Arthur. While it's still on campus, there are so many trees surrounding the lake and you have the river at your back. It's a place where I can get away without having to go anywhere.

What about your favorite place in Spokane?

My favorite place in Spokane is Chaps. It's an incredibly eclectic diner about 15 minutes from campus.

Which class and/or professor have you enjoyed the most so far?

Any class that I can have with my academic advisor, Dr. Pat Ferro, is so much fun. So far I've had him for two classes and he makes things exciting.

Give us a fun fact about you:

I have been on two solo sky dives.

What extra-curricular activity do you enjoy the most?

The extra-curricular activity I enjoy the most, besides Ambassadors, is ManTalk. ManTalk is a program at Gonzaga that goes into the underclassmen residence halls and provides a space for facilitated discussions on all aspects of being a male at college.

Even though you haven't left Gonzaga yet, what is your favorite memory so far?

There is no way for me to pick out one specific memory. So many of my favorite memories involve making an incredibly genuine and heartfelt connection with someone that can only happen at a place like Gonzaga.
