What made you choose your school? When I looked at going back to school, which happened many times, I had trouble finding the right fit for my schedule and funds. Crafton Hills College was always on the list because of location and the fact that it is a feeder school for other schools in the area. What finally closed the deal was their night offerings of Cisco classes. The program was accelerated, so I was able to get in four classes in two semesters. From there, my interest in education and Crafton has expanded.
What activity makes you happy? The simple things in life, like good grades and seeing my new grass seedlings grow.
What is your biggest pet peeve? People who do not stop to consider things.
What is something about you that might surprise someone? My hobbies include things like blacksmithing and video editing. I do a wide assortment of activities.... when I have time.
What is your favorite book, movie, or TV show and why? My favorite book is "Not Without Sorcery" by Theodore Sturgeon. It is part of the five percent of things that are truly good.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why? I would go to the Antarctic for a tour of the scenery. Why? How many people do you know who have been there? How many people have you heard of that have been there? It won't be 100% unique, but it certainly would be different.
If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be? To harness all the psydoscientific powers of the mind. Now that would be true brain power.
If you had a million dollars, how would you spend it? I wouldn't. I would put it into diversified investment across different industries in different forms. That way I would have a constant, baseline income and be freed from the requirement to work. Then, lots of things are possible.
What are your plans for after graduation? Keep learning and growing.
