2. What is Your best memory at Fanshawe so far?
"The night we had our year-end bash when illScarlett played — April 2010. I was getting towards the end of being VP entertainment and had one of my last studio times in MIA. Everyone was friendly and everyone was around."
3. What's your perfect day like?
"I wake up, see the sunshine. Morning wakeboard session on flat water. Breakfast in the boat, egg sandwich on a bagel. I'd want to come in and talk gear with my friends for hours — until lunch. There'd have to be cold cut sandwiches and juice and then a lounging period. A nap (would be involved) involved on a comfor table lawn chair in the shade with music and no bugs. Then I wake up and the wind has picked up just like that, and there's a kiteboarding session that lasts past dinner. A gorgeous sunset. Dinner is hot dogs and s'mores, cocktails and brews and then there's a huge jam session around the campfire."
4. What's one thing we should know about you and one thing we shouldn't know?
"I am a music geek, I suppose. I have music playing all the time. I eat pasta from the pot. Proper eating etiquette sometimes does not apply to me.
5. What's something weird that's happened to you since you joined the FSU?
"People recognizing me. They know me from my picture on the wall (by the Oasis). I'm always off-guard, people are like, "You!" and I feel like, "Oh, who? Me?" And getting my own business card."
