What's your major?

I study the city. I'm an urban studies major.

Where are you from?

I'm from Brookline, Massachusetts.

So how has your hometown influenced your style?

Well Brookline was designed by a man named Frederick Law Olmsted -- the same guy that designed Central Park in New York City and The Commons --

---1920 Commons?

No, unfortunately. I meant Boston Commons. Similar, but different. Anyway, I'd say it has a very incredible environment. There's a system of parks that run through my town, where I'd say I spent a lot of my time and I really appreciate the synthetic nature of the park. So I guess in that sense, Brookline has influenced my style, so to speak.

How would you describe your hair?

People have said that it's like a lion's mane. I think that's cool.

What do you hope will be your legacy at Penn?

I hope to eventually plant ivy that kinda chokes everything, so that Penn would become a scene from Jumanji. If that happens it would be because of me. So if the Ivy takeover really takes over, it's going to be a real ivy league school, you know what I mean?

How do you feel about Broadway?

My brother works with some stuff on Broadway but I don't know, I don't really like show tunes or musical stuff in general. But it'd be cool if our lives were musical theater. Like imagine that being reality. If we expressed ourselves through song all the time I think that'd be a really interesting universe.
