Most important thing I’ve learned so far in my major: That it’s okay to say, “I don’t know,” as long as the things you do know you know really well.​​

Can’t live without: Books​​

I’m most proud of: My cooking skills. Food is my greatest joy.​​

Favorite place at DePaul: Probably the grass area outside the rectory. It’s beautiful and peaceful.​

Favorite academic project: Working on a play called Normal, by Anthony Neilson. We made the play something we loved, and you can’t ask for more than that.​​

I love going to school in Chicago because: My family is here, Lake Michigan is magnificent and the summers are perfect.​​

I’ve always wanted to: Go skydiving. I’m scared of heights, but I'd like to overcome that fear.​​

Favorite quote: “But language can't touch the joyful and slightly disconcerting feeling of being very much in love, but not knowing exactly with whom.” - Pam Houston​​

Best place to eat on/off campus: Devil Dawgs​​

Best place to study on campus: The Director’s Office at The Theatre School​

Thin crust or deep dish? Hard question! I love deep dish, but can’t eat too much of it at one time, so I’d have to go with Pizano’s thin crust.​

Favorite hobbies: Cooking and crossword puzzles​

Favorite book: Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides​

As a Theatre student, going to school in Chicago allows me to: Make professional connections and have access to free (or cheap) tickets to a lot of different kinds of theater.​

Favorite Theatre School production so far: Four Twins, directed by Jenn BeVard. It was a classroom production, and Jenn transformed the room into a party atmosphere from the '70s. The physical work in the production was stunning and revelatory of character and story. The entire experience was a wild ride and changed my ideas of what I thought was possible.​​
