Biggest Turn on with a girl: Eyes and Confidence are a clean tie. Usually, one gives the other away. If a girl is comfortably confident in herself, she’ll have a glance that accents it. I love a girl who knows what she wants and what she has going for her, but doesn’t always feel the need to tell everyone about it. Plus, I’m a sucker for vivid eye-colors.
Biggest Turn off: When girls dumb themselves down or can’t find a good balance between being modest and being showy. If I can’t have a meaningful conversation with you, or you feel like you have to light up absolutely everyone else’s universe, chances are we might not hit it off so well.
Favorite movie and why?:I revert back to watching Elf for a good laugh literally any season of the year, but I’m gonna have to say that Fight Club holds the title of favorite movie in my book. There’s nothing else like sitting down for a good psychological thriller.
Celebrity Crush and why: Emma Watson. She’s drop-dead gorgeous, and close enough to my age that (at least in my fantasy) stuff would work out. Plus, while I would’ve chosen a different style myself, I feel like the drastic haircut was a sneak peek into a much more interesting and slightly mysterious personality that I’d love to get to know personally if given the chance.
Future Career Goals/Ambitions: I’m one of those people that absolutely needs to have a set plan to motivate myself, even though that plan adapts and changes over time. At the moment, I’m dead-set on either graduating with a 5-year MBA or immediately heading to Law school after undergrad. If I had the money, I’d love to get both. After that, I’m aspiring to either take a business route and become a Strategic Planning Analyst for a mid-sized company focused around consumer research, or find my niche somewhere overseas as some sort of ambassador.
Hobbies/Interests: Guitar, 12-string, Snowboarding, Graphic Design, Sketching, Painting, Street Art, Tattoos, Coffee, Model UN, Camping, Cooking, Exploring
Most embarrassing moment: Getting walked in on by a parent who didn’t know I was dating her daughter.
Best date you’ve ever been on?:I guess I’m a simple pleasure kind of guy. It started off as a leisurely walk downtown, with a pit-stop for my all-time favorite dessert (Tiramisu) at a cozy little cafe with black leather couches, accompanied by a lengthy discussion about things nobody but us would understand. And as any of my favorite dates ended, a very long drive with a custom-made playlist before stargazing from the roof of a car on a clear cool night in the middle of an open field.
3 things you would bring with you to a deserted island? A guitar, pen and paper, a cute girl.
What about Suffolk University are you most looking forward to? City-life. As much as I’ve enjoyed my stay in small-town NH, I promised myself when I was wee lad that I’d land myself an opportunity in a big city. And well, here I am.
How does it feel to have been nominated as a welcome week campus cutie? I’m not usually one for spotlights, but I suppose it’s cool knowing that I piqued someone’s interest somewhere along the way.
Do you plan on getting involved on campus, if so, doing what? Absolutely. I’ll probably start off with Model UN since I was the president of my high school’s club and loved it. Student government and the radio station are also looking pretty appetizing. Besides that? I guess I’ll just have to keep my eyes and ears open, I’m pretty open to trying new things. I like to keep myself busy though, that’s for sure.
Whats an interesting fact about you most people don’t know? I’m a guacamole connoisseur and chef! I love making it from scratch and changing up my recipe all the time.
Most romantic thing you’ve done for a girl/women? A girl I was close to said she hated feeling alone, and she had an issue with recurring nightmares, but had always been fascinated by paper cranes. I made her an elaborate mobile with roughly 20 hand-folded paper cranes all with differently printed paper. The two birds in the middle shared the same pattern, and my name was written on the underside of the wings of one bird while her name was on the bottom of another. I told her that all she needed to do was look up, and she would know I was there in spirit.
