HobbiesI enjoy art, mainly drawing and photography. My passion for creativity has led me to take art classes in college (when I can fit them in) and also work on independent projects. I have always enjoyed reading—some of my favorite English language authors include Philip Jose Farmer, J.K. Rowling, and Arthur C. Clarke. My favorite Latin authors are currently Horace and Lucretius. My favorite Greek is probably Aristophanes. I am currently President of the Classics Club at UIUC and UIUC's chapter of Eta Sigma Phi, the Classics Honor Society. I also act as art editor of the Campus Honors Program's literary and art magazine, Equinox, and function as a member of the Campus Honors Program's Honors Student Council.
