What are you involved with on campus?
I write for Elon’s comedy sketch show, Elon Tonight, and am the Op-Ed editor for The Edge.
Where would you like to see yourself in 10 years?
In Australia. It doesn’t matter what I’m doing or whom I’m with, but that’s where I really want to live, for at least a while.
What is your favorite food?
Bojangles. The entire restaurant and anything on their menu. That is my favorite food.
Do you have a celebrity crush?
Nastia Lieukin. I’m going to be watching a lot more women’s gymnastics this summer than I’ll comfortably admit.
What’s your favorite quality in a girl?
I’m tied between a good sense of humor and intelligence. I need a girl who is interesting enough that I get really attracted to her personality alone, but can still make me laugh often.
Is there a quirky fact that no one knows about you?
I can make a mean laser sound with my mouth. It sounds pretty pointless but in 19 years no one has ever been able to replicate it, despite frequent and repeated efforts.
What’s your ideal date?
I had a date at the fair once, and I think that set the standard for ideal dates for me. There are plenty of rides to go on, fried foods to share, and time to just walk and get to know each other.
What’s your biggest turn-off?
Not getting my sense of humor. If I try to make a joke and it falls flat, there’s not much more that can be done between us.
Would you rather…
· Go rock climbing or bungee jumping?
Rock Climbing, I’ve always been distrustful of elastics.
· Eat Italian food or Mexican food?
Depends on the day, but probably Italian
· Watch a comedy or a drama?
Comedy, hands down.
Best relationship advice you’ve ever received?
Every important conversation should happen in person. Don’t argue over Facebook chat, don’t only say nice things in an email, and for the love of god, don’t break up with someone over text. Pony up and say it to their face.
