This campus cutie is a southern boy with a city twist. He’s down to earth enough to love mac n’ cheese, yet sophisticated enough to be bilingual (c’est magnifique!). He finds nothing more attractive in a love interest than good old confidence. He is a swimmer and most importantly, a hopeless romantic. And he’s all Penn’s!
