I wanted a new experience. I wanted to meet and learn about people who came from different places than myself.
- “Being a Jayhawk means…”
Striving to make a difference and accepting all people regardless of their background.
- “I’m most proud of…”
The change in world perspective that I gained from KU. KU exposed me to ideas and ways of thinking that I didn’t know existed.
- The best advice I ever got:
Don’t skip class and don’t be afraid to reach out to your professors for help.
- My best advice for college students:
Take advantage of the resources KU has to offer. Everyone here wants our students to be successful. Reaching out to these resources will undoubtedly put you on a path to success.
- My guilty pleasure:
Watching Rick and Morty or Adventure Time
- My super power would be:
To be able to fly or absorb knowledge through osmosis
- The last thing I read for fun was:
Last Child in the Woods and June 6th, 1944
- What’s the best KU tradition?
Locking arms with fellow students/alumni to sing our Alma Mater. It’s really special to share that will people from all generations and with people that you don’t know, but still call KU home.
- What inspires you?
My wife, my family, my desire to leave a positive impact on my community and the world.

Traveling to as many places as I possibly can

Richard Louv (environmentalist/activist), Gabriel Garcia Marquez (author), George Brett, Katy Perry, Reece Witherspoon, Blink-182, Heath Ledger, Elon Musk, President Obama, my wife, my family, a few friends, oh and Robin Williams.
- Where is the most unexpected place you've ever heard or said, "Rock Chalk"?
