Describe yourself: Silly, loyal, ambitious

Most important thing I've learned so far in my major: Work hard, network and get involved in projects outside of class​

Biggest goal in life: To work for one of the Big Six major film studios. I know it’s an ambitious goal, but I will try!​​

Can’t live without: My faith. If most everything were taken away from me, I would still have that.​

Favorite place at DePaul: The CDM building in the Loop campus. Even though I work there, it's fun because I get to see a lot of my friends.​

Love going to school in Chicago because: There's always something to do! I grew up in a small town in Indiana. The people there are great, but it’s easy to get bored. Chicago is the complete opposite of what I was used to.​​

Have always wanted to: Travel the world. I know it sounds cliché, but the world is so big, we might as well explore it.​​

I’m most proud of: My group of film friends. We put so much time, effort and money into our films. I have yet to see another major that has students that are as dedicated as we are.​

Favorite hobby: I used to be a cheerleader, dancer and gymnast, so now I enjoy taking free dance classes at The Ray.​

Favorite book: What Happened to Lani Garver by Carol Plum-Ucci

Favorite quote: "It was the man's dreams, and his inspiring attempt to make them come true that remain important." — Francis Ford Coppola. I like the quote so much that I put it on the bottom of my resumé.
