If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why? I'm very much looking forward to a semester abroad in Florence, but I'd also love to spend some time exploring America in the next few years, particularly New England.

What is your favorite book, movie, or TV show and why? Hemingway's "A Moveable Feast" tops my list of favorite books, because it first sparked my interest in travel and life abroad. "LOST" is easily my favorite show, for reasons obvious to anyone who stuck with it for all six seasons. It's hard to narrow it down to one favorite film, but "Meet Joe Black" is up there--it's not a masterpiece by any measure, but the last scene brings a tear to my eye every time.

What activity makes you happy? Thinking. I live in my head. Riding a bike is great too, especially in the fall.

If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be? I don't want to be a superhero, but I admire V from "V for Vendetta".

What is something about you that might surprise someone? I wrestled for one season in high school. Most people laugh when I tell them that, but I swear it's not a joke.

If you had a million dollars, how would you spend it? I'd pay off my student loans, and those of a few friends so that I could hold it over their heads for the rest of my life.
