<b>How did you get involved with the theater?</b>

I've always loved acting. My first real role was at West Potomac as a sleazy salesman my freshman year.

<b>What do you like about the stage?</b>

I like how this stage has an opening proscenium curtain.

<b>How do you feel about the new T.C. Williams?</b>

At first, I didn't like it. But it grows on you. I miss the old building though.

<b>What is the theater like in the new building?</b>

The theater is nice. I liked the old one more because it felt more like a home, even though it was a high school auditorium.

<b>What do you plan to do after you graduate?</b>

After I graduate I want to go to collage and major in Outdoor Leadership. I also want to be a sailor in the World Cup.

<b>What kind of a profession do you see yourself in?</b>

I want to be an adventurer of sorts. I really, really don't want a desk job — definitely something outside.

<b>What's the best book you've read in the last year?</b>

The best book I've read during this past year was "The Kite Runner." That book is amazing.

<b>What’s your favorite movie?</b>

My favorite movie is "Master and Commander."

<b>What are you personal goals?</b>

I'm the T.C. Williams Ice Hockey goalie, and a personal goal for me is to get a shut out at least one of our games.
