What made you decide to be a teacher?
I hadn’t planned on it originally, but after teaching on contract when the school found itself without a Business Law professor, I decided I really liked it—and the department was nice enough to let me stick around.
What are some of your hobbies?
Reading (as long as it’s a good story, and isn’t remotely useful), generally trying to be less physically sedentary (walking, elliptical, rack), recently trying to learn basic guitar (I’m ridiculously horrible), occasional gamer if the mood strikes me.
What’s something people might be surprised to know about you?
My parents are Caucasian (Polish and Russian/German descent lines IIRC).
What’s your favorite thing about PUC?
The students. MY students in particular.
What’s your favorite spot on campus?
The Clark Stairs. #sarcasm
What’s your favorite book?
“The Dark Tower” series.
What advice would you give to an incoming freshman?
Your teachers don’t bite. In fact, they’re generally here because working with, advising, and helping you is the best part of the job—so if you need something, ask.
