In my spare time, I like to play ultimate frisbee, write political opinion pieces, experiment with film making, and fish and camp in the beautiful North Country.

I'm a hometown Canton kid and I
enjoy St. Lawrence University's small town atmosphere.  While there’s never a shortage of things to
do, it’s always peaceful here.

From the first class, I was drawn
to Canadian studies.  Even though we’re
only 20 miles from the Canadian border, in high school I learned about the
United States and our system of government, but not about our Canadian
neighbors.  It’s refreshing to learn
about a whole new system with so many similarities and yet many differences as well.
 Having the opportunity to sit in on a
session of the House of Commons on a Canadian Studies 101 fieldtrip was
fascinating.

When I'm not studying here at
SLU, I often work on campus.  I was
employed full time by the university on the buildings & grounds crew last
summer.
