Hometown: Austin, TX


Major: Neuroscience

Secondary Major: Theatre

Minor: Psychology

My favorite spots in New Orleans are...

The French Market, the New Orleans Jazz Museum, Southern Repertory Theatre, Le Petit Theatre, the Audubon Aquarium, or ANYWHERE along the riverwalk! For food, you can't beat Katie's swamp fries in mid city, Parkway Bakery's po'boys, or Central Grocery's muffulettas.

My favorite NOLA festival is...

The Irish Channel Parade! (Lots of free food, and lots of free hugs. It would have sounded a lot more appealing prior to COVID-19.)

Favorite Tulane class/professor...

US Theatre History with Dr. Victor Holtcamp -or- Sensation & Perception with Dr. Thomas Hebert.

I chose Tulane because...

Tulane encourages its students to become great scholars AND great people. It seems like everyone on this campus is eager to learn something from the other people here, whether they be fellow students, professors, staff members, or visitors. Plus, Tulane is a school for innovators -- with the ability to major across colleges and take classes in any department, you can combine your passions to prepare to serve the world in your own unique way.
