Been at BU since: July 2018
On weekends you can often find me: Cooking or baking, exploring the outdoors; hiking, canoeing, camping, backpacking,
You might be surprised to know: I speak French and love learning about francophone cultures.
I can't imagine life without: Friends and family, cooking and baking, good coffee, woods, wilderness, and waters
The film that comes to mind as my favorite is: It's A Wonderful Life by Frank Capra
The best part of being an advisor is: Helping students reach their goals despite challenging situations.
My favorite season in the northeast is: Autumn
I admit I'm a big softy when it comes to: Old folks; take time to listen, you'll always learn something interesting.
My greatest influence is: An old guy who always works hard, is always hungry to learn, and taught me everyone and every issue is more complex than they initially appear - my Dad.
My favorite books are: Empire Falls by Richard Russo, A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold, and O Pioneers! by Willa Cather
My favorite quote is: "The only man I know who behaves sensibly is the tailor; he takes everyone's measurements anew each time he sees them. The rest go on with their old measurements and expect everyone else to fit them." ~ George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
"We abuse the land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see the land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect." ~ Aldo Leopold
