I'm from Marengo, Ill., and I have one older brother who attends Northern Illinois University. I play basketball at Ambrose, major in Journalism as well as radio/TV. I am also a member of the honors program. I have two dogs, Daisy and Oreo. Some hobbies of mine are chess, golfing, and music. I've always wanted to live in Seattle or Portland, I couldn't tell you why. My favorite food is cereal and my favorite color is blue.
