words that describe me: Intelligent, ambitious, adaptable, chill, creative.

A celebrity I have met: I once moved Lyle Lovett out of the way to get a picture of the ducks in the Peabody Hotel (in Memphis, Tenn.).

philosophy on life: There's no way you can't reach your greatest potential if you set unrealistically high goals and then shoot to get as close as possible.

Pet peeves: Stupidity, ignorance and carelessness.

If I could change one thing about the world, it would be: Government. Generally, ours is either ineffective or has harmful motives.

Favorite places I've traveled: Everyone should go cross country by road at some point in their lives.

Would i ever run for political office: I would like a successful career in something else first, then maybe political office, and then I want to teach, so eventually, maybe. I feel like some grounded ideas and a genuine desire to change our nation for the better are lacking in Washington right now and would make a real difference.
