When not at camp: I play a lot of sports and music. I'm on a soccer and squash team at my college. I also play the piano and write songs.

If you could take the camp on a field trip where would you go and why? I would love to take my bunk group white water rafting. It's such an adrenaline rush, they would love it. I've done it once and it's so much fun.

If you were stranded on a desert island (but had all of the essential survival items) what three things would you bring? I would bring a piano and a soccer ball for entertainment. I would also have to have another person with me, so I would bring a friend!

What's the best vacation you've ever been on? I went to Kenya and Ghana last year with my family. We went on a safari and saw lots of gorillas, which was insane.

Why Campus Kids? It seemed perfect for me. It was a big combination of travelling, working with kids, and teaching sports. Those are all things that I love to do, and it's been great so far.
