1. How do you define a great application?
A great application showcases the unique aspects of the applicant; what you will bring to our community. It highlights your academic strengths, illuminates your passions, and articulates how you see SCU empowering you to achieve your goals.

2. What inspires your work?
I think students should be encouraged to explore many possibilities, and to think critically about what they want from their undergraduate experience. I am inspired by students who are actively engaged in discovering the opportunities that are available to them.

3. What do you do in your spare time?
I explore Northern California. I moved to the Bay Area in 2008, so it is all new to me. Favorite activities include live music and theater, visiting museums, and backpacking.

4. What is your favorite song?
"Little Wing" by Jimi Hendrix (although the Stevie Ray Vaughn version is probably my favorite recording of the song)
