My earliest Marist Memory is...moving into my apartment in the middle of a bitterly cold January.

When I think of heroes, I think of...the only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.

One of my favorite movies is...Apocalypse Now.

The best things about college...are the challenges.

My biggest "mentor" growing up father.

If I could travel anywhere, I'd go to...somewhere in Southeast Asia far away from cell phone reception.

When not busy with things at Marist...I attempt to gather thoughts into short stories, stumble upon interesting books, watch good flicks, play basketball and soccer, and play drums in a rock band and an Irish band.

My message to the students of Marist is...drink deep or taste not the Pierian Spring.
