I love the University of Tennessee! The campus is beautiful –I love walking on campus and seeing students learning, talking, hanging out in hammocks, and voicing their ideas. The trees, hills, mountains, lakes, and rivers in the greater Knoxville area are very inspiring; and Knoxville itself is incredible! There is always something fun to do! Speaking of that, I really enjoy playing improvisational music (drums and percussion), hanging out with my family, and learning all kinds of new things each day. I also love teaching and, if you are an incoming honors freshman, I highly recommend seeing if I am teaching an honors study abroad course. You will learn so much! If you have questions, please contact me: or 865-974-3177.
