(Baby Picture D in Print Edition)

What charity have you chosen to represent?

American Lung Association

What would be your advice to underclassmen concerning high school?

My advice to underclassmen is the basic “get involved” response… but in all honesty high school would not have been nearly as fun if I didn’t participate in all of the clubs and activities that I did.  So go try something new and make some friends.

If you could pick anyone other than yourself to win, who would it be?

I really can’t pick a guy who I think should win because I like all of them a lot and honestly I will be happy with whoever wins.

Why should we choose you to be Mr. Washington Twp 2017?

I tell a funny joke every once in a while, other than that, I’ve got nothing.

What cartoon character do you relate to the most?

I can’t really say that I can relate to Mrs. Incredible all that much, but if I had to pick a super power it would definitely be her’s.  I just want to be as flexible as Go Robert.

Childhood aspiration vs. current aspiration?

When I was a child I wanted to be an astronaut.  I can’t say that I don’t still want to be an astronaut because that would be cool, but engineering is the path I’m heading down.  At the end of the day however, my aspiration in life is to be happy (that’s a quote from Beyoncé).

What is your hidden talent?

I’m not really that good at anything but I CAN park a car pretty well. One time a bus driver at Healthtrax complemented me on my parking skills because I fit my van into a really small spot next to him. “I thought to myself, that man can park… and he’s a little guy too!” -bus driver at Healthtrax

How do you want to be remembered at WTHS?
The little guy that can park. Just kidding it would be cool if people remembered me as someone who just liked to be happy.

Favorite Movie?

Mean Girls, duh.

If you had the chance, what would you change about yourself?

I’d turn myself into John Cena.

If you could live anywhere but the US where would it be?

I would most likely live in France because I love the language and I just think the culture there is pretty dope.  Also, I would be close to Italy and I love me some pasta.

What teacher at WTHS has had the biggest impact on your high school career?

It is so hard to narrow it down to just one because so many teachers here have taught me more than I could ever repay them for.  Mrs. Reardigan and Ms. Pancari showed me that it’s okay to be yourself.  Mrs. Merrill continues to show me that you simply can’t give up if you ever want to succeed.  Lastly Madame Hudak makes me laugh every single day. So thank you for everything.

What person in your life has had the biggest impact on you?

My mom has always been the one to cheer me up and remind me that I am strong.  Thanks mom, love you.

If you could be any kitchen appliance, what would you be and why?

Probably the garbage disposal

If you were a superhero, what would your name be and what would be your greatest weakness?

I’m not really sure what my name or superpower would be but my weakness would definitely be people chewing really loud all around me because that really gets to me I must say.

Favorite Animal?

Lions, they’re amazing.

Favorite Ice Cream Flavor

Peanut Butter Cream from Brusters will always have my heart.  Swing thru to the Bru!

Describe your dream date:

My dream date would involve something spontaneous.  I’d have no idea where we were going next but it would be amazing.

Who is your favorite fictional character?

It’s a three-way tie between Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games, Regina George because she’s an icon, and Gloria from Modern Family because she cracks me up.
