Five Questions

January 30, 2012Duke Law News

1. Quick bio:
Hometown: Bellingham, Washington - "The City of Subdued Excitement"
College: Claremont McKenna College - '07. Double major in Literature and Government with a minor in Leadership Studies.

2. Favorite non-law read:
It's a close call between "Moby Dick" and anything by Kurt Vonnegut. So it goes...

3. Favorite Durham restaurant:
Taqueria la Vaquita - the Mexican restaurant with the fiberglass cow on the roof. The tacos are especially good. I recommend branching out and trying the tripe, tongue or udder.

4. When you are not at the Law School, how do you like to spend your time?
I'm generally running or doing something else outside.

5. Tell us something about yourself that otherwise we wouldn't know or guess:
I was a terror since the public school era. And that periodically during my senior year in college I'd crank up my speakers as loud as possible and dance around the dorm to Kelly Clarkson's "Since You've Been Gone."
