About Me

I am a native Philadelphian, having grown up in the Mt. Airy section of the city and the suburb of Upper Dublin Township. Music is very important to me and I have a particular interest in '80s/'90s metal, punk and hip hop. I also love traveling and sampling the food scene in different cities.

What advice would you give to a high school student applying to college?

Minimize the stress, maximize the fun! College campuses are magical places filled with exciting ideas and opportunities. Enjoy spending time with your family as your college search leads you to discover new people and places. As long as you do your due diligence in terms of research and preparation, you will end up with strong choices at the end of the process.


Place on Campus:
I have two: the Main Building and the URBN Center. As the original building on campus, the Main Building is representative of Drexel's rich tradition and history. One of the more modern buildings on campus, the URBN Center stands as an exemplar of the creativity and innovation that is propelling Drexel forward into the future.
Restaurant/Food Truck:
Saad's at 45th and Walnut, not too far from campus. Although cheesesteaks, roast pork, and hoagies get top billing in Philly, I'm convinced that their baba ghanoush is the best in the city.
Philadelphia Landmark/Location:
The Mutter Museum. It's a museum of medical history with all kinds of fascinating specimens, including pieces of Albert Einstein's brain!
