Q. How long have you lived in Baldwin City and what brought you


A. Almost two years. I moved here to be closer to family.

Q. What's the biggest risk you've ever taken?

A. Running alone after my swim coach at the shore in New Jersey when I was 6. He was a good mile ahead of me. My mom's kept me pretty risk-averse since that incident!

Q. What's the best piece of advice you've ever been given?

A. “Be good and have fun” – from my dad.

Q. What two things would you want people to know about you?

A. I love Coy Wayne Weege and I play a pretty mean croquet game.

Q. What did you want to be when you grew up?

A. An architect - but I went with graphic design, because it's a quicker process.

Q. What's the best way for you to get away from it all?

A. On my back porch with Coy and a bottle of wine

Q. What's your ideal vacation spot?

A. The Jersey Shore - it’s nothing like the show.
