Why did you choose Roeper? I chose Roeper because of its mission, its warm staff, and its extremely talented student body. I believe Roeper is serious about its purpose and its efforts to see those ends.
Interests or hobbies? What do you do in your spare time? I am a fan of reading in a quiet space, watching old movies, exercising, and cooking.
Any travel experiences to share? I was in the United State Peace Corps for two years following graduation, so there was a lot of traveling within my service and immediately after. I mainly stuck to my service country China.
Anything about your family you want to share? Almost all of my family is from Detroit, so we have a lot of history in the area.
Favorite books and movies? Favorite book is anything by Toni Morrison or James Rollins. Favorite movie is without a doubt Gladiator.
What do you like about teaching? I love the interaction with students. To see them work out a problem on their own or come up with novel ideas just makes all my efforts worthwhile.
