537 best photoWhy did you join Phi Sig, was your family an influence?
My dad initially piqued my interest in Phi Sig by showing me the house and introducing me to some of the brothers, but I joined because of the members more than anything.

What is your best Phi Sig memory so far?
My best Phi Sig memory is Superstars; the leukemia-lymphoma philanthropy we host every spring. We team up with girls and do obstacle courses and other activities; everybody gets really into it's always a great time.

Why did you want to become president?
Initially, the family tradition stood out to me, but after holding other positions like VP and risk manager I felt like this was the natural next step for me in my leadership goals.

How has your experience living in house been?
I've enjoyed it as much as you can; I've been here since first semester sophomore year. There are always guys around to hang out with and something to do.

How would your life be different if you never joined Phi Sig?
I don't think I'd have met as many close friends as I have. When I came to college, I was much more of an introvert, but joining kind of got that out of me and made making friends easier.

What are your plans and goals for your future?
I have an internship in Boston at Liberty Mutual this summer that I can hopefully turn into a full time position. I'm also excited to continue to lead Phi Sig for the remainder of my term.

What's it like having your Dad coming to house to help out?
It's awesome, he's very personable. When he comes over everyone's excited to see him, he relates to the brothers really well, he's closer to our generation than a lot of people. He hangs out with us normally.

What has been the best part of your Phi Sig experience so far?
Making connections with people I never thought I would meet. I came to Penn State with a few close friends, but I've expanded that greatly and I now have many close friendships I might not have had.

What was it like attending the Joe Paterno viewing with your father?
I learned a little more about my dad because he's never been that emotional around me. Seeing the influence Joe Pa had on him and how much my dad cared about him changed my image of my dad in a positive way.
