“It is better to debate a question without settling it than to settle a question without debating it.” - Joseph Joubert

I like to collect fountain pens.

You may not know this about me, but I was on a Roller Derby team in Texas. 

A transformative moment in my life was when I lived in a medieval house (built in 1576) in Germany for a year.

My favorite activity is social dancing!

My favorite place I have traveled is Veenhuizen Prison in the Netherlands with 30 Penn State students. It was an eye-opening experience.
