Breakfast or dinner? Describe your ideal meal.
I’m easy to please: Pizza and beer are an ideal pairing in my world!
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? Why?
Well, if I’m being honest I really thought I would end up at Hogwarts until I hit 5th grade … so, from then on, I decided that being a writer was the next best thing. I loved books and writing; they were always my safe place.
I loved the feeling of getting lost in a book or a paper I was working on. Writing in school was never a chore—it was my escape. So once I learned that becoming a writer was a realistic career, I was hooked.
What has been your favorite MSPC project and why?
Launching TechChannel in 2021 is by far the MSPC project I’m most proud of. It was a difficult endeavor but it showed our team’s ability to pivot during unexpected times and innovate where and when it mattered most.
Recommend a book, movie, album, etc.—a favorite or something you’ve consumed recently.
I would highly recommend The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, both on Disney+. I won’t recommend a book right now, as most of the books I’ve read recently relate to Frankenstein, and are in Spanish … read on to find out why.
What skill, hobby, experience, etc., do you have that would surprise people?
I can’t decide between two, so I’ll list both:
- I’m currently pursuing my Ph.D. in English at the University of Minnesota. My dissertation will focus on the reception of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein in Spain, and I’ll be examining several Spanish adaptations and translations within my research.
- I regularly do strongman workouts and have been training in the sport for about a year and a half now (if you’re wondering if “strongman” workouts include lifting boulders, metal logs, sandbags and other large metal contraptions, you’re correct). My brother, who is also my trainer, is a professional strongman and holds several titles across the Midwest. Eventually I hope to start competing more, but for now, I just enjoy the feeling of empowerment I get from training. For reference, here’s a photograph of me lifting a 150-pound keg:
