1. What is the last picture you took with your phone?
A box of donuts from Julie Darling Donuts, to taunt a friend back in Nashville.

2. What advice do you have for students? 
Learning doesn’t end when you graduate and have a job.  Education will always be the single best way to improve your place in life.  Also, don’t be afraid to ask questions.  I personally find it intimidating to ask questions in certain situations, but just find a way that works best for you.

3. What do you like to do in your free time? 

Without sounding too nerdy, I love consuming information.  I probably spend a few hours a day reading and listening to the news.  It’s so easy to be well-informed; there’s no good excuse not to be.  If you want a more fun answer, I’m a lifelong gamer, so I’m either playing video games or watching my favorite broadcasters on twitch.

4. Spring, Summer, Winter, or Fall?
Winter, Fall, Spring, in that order.

5. Dogs or cats?
Neither, but small dogs if I had to choose.

6. Favorite cartoon?
Favorite animation would include shows like Batman: The Animated Series, Avatar: The Last Air Bender, King of the Hill, and Archer.

7. What is the last movie you went to see?
Deadpool 2. 

8. What sort of movies do you like?
As a genre, I love sci-fi, but anything by Christopher Nolan or Quentin Tarantino will have me in the theater on opening weekend.

9. Star Trek or Star Wars?
I’ll take Jean-Luc Picard over those whiny, galaxy-wrecking, Skywalker brats any day.  But, truthfully, they’re both enjoyable.

10. Early bird or night owl?
Probably early bird.
