What is the single most important thing you would want to accomplish as president? Establish an environment that fosters free-flowing communication. How many hours of sleep do you get each night? Five to six Who has been the most influential adult in your Andover experience? My house counselor from both freshman year and this year, Mr. [Scott] Hoenig [Instructor in Mathematics], because he’s always there to support me in everything I do. What has been your favorite class at Andover? I’ve had many a favorite class, but I’d have to say Theater 200 was the best because I got to do the big end production with a heavy Southern drawl—that was just ridiculous. What class do you wish you could take but know you never can? Dr. Keller’s independent project about the career of medicine. It’s not your typical class because there are more real world applications. If you could change one thing about Andover, what would it be? The lack of flexibility within course and extracurricular selection. A lot of times people don’t necessarily have the opportunity to pursue their real passions because of restrictions in course selections. Of course in going about this you would have to you start off the discussion with the administrators because they are the only people that have power to make influential changes. What do you want to do when you grow up? I have no idea but I know I don’t want to end up in a cubicle or homeless. I do know I want to work with people. Describe your ideal first date? One that happens.
