My favorite author is… Hemingway because the simplicity of his prose appeals to the imagination of his reader.

My favorite subject in school… is English!!! How can anyone not love a subject that deals with exclamation points and rhetorical questions?

My favorite subject in school… was English because I always loved to read and write, and I appreciated being introduced to new genres and authors. I then went on to teach middle school and high school English for seven years.
I loved DePauw University because… it was small and allowed me to get to know my professors really well. It also was a place where you had the freedom to create your own clubs, activities, and more – that’s how I started DePauw’s film club and student film festival!
On a day off, you’ll find me… at the movies!
