Q: What do you have your students call you?

Q: Where’s your hometown?
A: I was born in Chicago and raised in Philadelphia.
Q: What do you think of Cabrini so far?
A: I really like it. I was an adjunct all of last year and substituted for three classes each semester. So I got acquainted with the campus.
Q: What’s your favorite book?
A: The Jungle by Upton Sinclair. I read it for the first time in high school. I liked it a lot and recently read it again and got reacquainted.
Q: What’s your guilty pleasure?
A: I’m a big Genesis fan. I recently went to see them two nights in a row. The second night I had floor seats.
