What will you be doing at this year’s Weekend of Excellence?
I was nominated for Greek Man of the Year, which is given out during the weekend. 

How has your time at Loyola helped shape you as a person?
Loyola has really helped drive my passions as a person. During my time here, I had the privilege of serving my fraternity, Tau Kappa Epsilon, for two years as president. I learned so much about listening, leading, and learning in such a short amount of time. I cannot imagine going to school anywhere else and having a different experience.

What do you hope to be doing 10 years from now?
This is the $1 million question, isn’t it? I hope to be back in my hometown of St. Louis representing the city on the Board of Aldermen. I have always enjoyed politics and the idea of helping others through public service. So I hope to be combining all of my passions by serving my favorite city. After that, we’ll see where it goes.
