Eating out 
I love Cracker Barrel because of the home-style food they cook and because it reminds me of the South. I lived in Tennessee for a summer, and I really enjoy the southern part of the United States.

Vacation destination 
Arizona. My family and I used to go there for baseball spring training, and I love the warm weather!

What I watch on Netflix 
Last Chance U—a biography series about a junior college football team. The vast majority of the athletes are guys that got kicked out of their big-name Division I schools, so this is literally their last chance. I’m a big, big fan of sports biography TV shows, movies and books.

Favorite place on Northwestern's campus 
The Juffer Athletic Fieldhouse. I’m also a graduate assistant for the baseball team, so I spend a lot of time there. It’s such a blessing for our athletes to have a facility like that at a college our size.
