“I became a Jayhawk because…”

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.

What’s at the top of your bucket list?

Traveling to as many places as I possibly can

Who would you invite to your dream dinner party?

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"?

Jinotega, Nicaragua. I found a KU shirt for sale there in a tiny shop.
