What is the best part about being a Rooseveltian?

The sense of being part of such a unique community.

Favorite fun fact about Roosevelt

Our early advisory board had some real heavyweights on it; Albert Einstein, Pearl Buck, Ralph Bunche… I mean, come on!

Describe your role when it comes to helping students

My role is in helping students discover RU and realize what a remarkable place it is, and then in getting them enrolled.

Favorite Chicagoland restaurant

Bob Chinn’s for seafood!

Favorite neighborhood in Chicago

Rogers Park - my childhood home and a real melting pot of cultures.

Best way to spend a day off of work

Going to two or three guitar shops and strumming away on their top-end acoustics. 

Chicago Style Hot Dog or Chicago Style Pizza? 

Hmmm, tough one.  Can’t beat Lou’s, though.

What does social justice mean to you?

It means we disregard which boat your ancestors or mine came in on and, instead, regard what we each offer as individuals.
