Why did you choose Criminal Justice as your major? Because I wanted to put people in jail. Just kidding, I decided to major in CRJ because I want to be part of the drug war that is going in the United States, and be involved in putting an end to the mayhem and violence that plays a role with it. With my degree, I hope to one day become part of the DEA agency (Drug Enforcement Administration) and be working with the K-9 units since I love dogs.

What do you like to do for fun? I love to play soccer! It is a big part of my life. I have been playing soccer since I was 5 years old and continue to play it for fun and at a competitive level.

Where can you normally be found on campus? At the West and Downtown campus, usually at the gym!

What's the last thing you listened to on your iPod? Kanye West - Everything I Am.

Boxers or briefs? Boxer-briefs! They are the two things in one. 

What's a beauty trend you absolutely dislike on girls? Heavy make-up! I understand that make-up is very important for a girl, but some girls overdo it to the point that they are no longer recognizable without it. Ladies, be confident with who you are. You are all beautiful in your own way.

If someone were to film a movie about your life, who would you want to be casted as you and why? Bruno Mars because I have been told we look alike. 

What's your biggest pet peeve? Last minute cancelations and changes. It's really annoying when you take time to plane something and people don't show up, cancel last minute, or change plans that were set originally.

Before you graduate next year, what at the top 3 things you want to do at ASU? Be on the ASU men soccer and tennis team, try to finish a semester with all A's, and take a dance class. 

What has been your favorite memory so far at ASU?  Meeting some great people who I am happy to call my friends.

What do you find most attractive in a girl? Personality and humor; there's nothing more attractive than a girl with a great personality who knows how to have fun, likes to joke around and be funny. If I can be myself around them without feeling judged, that connection and attraction will show.

Do you have any favorite foods? Chipotle! 

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Working for some sort of police department or ageny so I start building experience for the DEA. 

And finally, how do you feel about being this week's Campus Cutie? Great! I get to show ASU who I am and what I like!
