The 24-year-old came from undergraduate studies at Wofford College. He will begin his second year of pharmacy school in the fall.

How have you spent your summer so far?
Between semesters I’ve really just been hanging out with friends, I don’t really have a job or anything. I’ve been doing a lot of running, a lot of hiking, mountain biking, I play a lot of disc golf and I just got accepted to the MBA program too, so I have to do some summer work with that.

What are you doing right now?
I just was hungry so I biked over to Earth Fare, got some food. Figured I’d sit in the park and eat it. They have a nice little buffet. I like to make a little salad/hot bar combo.

If you could describe yourself as an animal what would it be?
It’s funny because I got asked this question for my interview here and I had this elaborate answer and I don’t remember what it was. Any animal? Maybe a dolphin? I’m pretty energetic, I have a hard time sitting still. I feel like dolphins are pretty mobile. I’d like to think I’m pretty intelligent.

What is your favorite food and why?
Um ... nachos. No, that’s wrong. Ice cream. Ice cream for sure. Specifically Half-Baked by Ben & Jerry’s. I ate a whole pint the other day.

If you had 24 hours left on earth, what would you do?
I would go see my family, go see my best friends in Atlanta, it’s like a five-hour drive so I have 15 hours left ... Maybe ... If it’s summertime, go to a Braves game, eat as much ice cream as possible and yeah, I guess just hang out with my family that night and then peace out.
