What brought you to Hawaii?

It's Hawaii and they have a really good International Business program. So I came here for the schooling and to experience a different culture.


What do you miss most about home?

I miss having a car, that's for sure. And I guess I miss the Southern California lifestyle. Mexican food- that's a big one.


If you could see any band/musician live, living or dead, who would it be?

Led Zeppelin.


If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be?

"The Dock of the Bay" by Otis Redding.


What are you most proud of?

Being Italian. 


What is your favorite thing to do outdoors?

Fishing, definitely. I love saltwater fishing in Southern California.


Biggest turn on?

A girl who can hold a conversation.


Biggest turn off?

Someone who's closed minded and conceited.


Tell me about one of your craziest adventures:

So, last spring break... there were eight of us on four paddle boards with spear guns and a bunch of other gear. We went out to the Mokes from Lanikai and went cliff jumping. Then a hurricane came and we had to paddle back in dark stormy weather. It took us like two hours. That was an awesome day. 


Speaking of hurricanes, how did you cope with Hurricane Ana?

We’re doing a lot of day drinking over here in Manoa.


Describe your ideal night out:

Going to see a band play- a band that I'm stoked on- and then hanging out with good friends after and having good conversation. 


Dream big. What is your ultimate goal in life?

I’d like to be a firefighter... so I guess helping people and being a firefighter back home. I went to the fire academy after high school for two years and then came here.


What’s your go-to show to binge-watch on Netflix/HBO-Go/Hulu?
