"Union was a time when I explored everything. I became a radio DJ. I learned to shoot and develop photos for Concordiensis. I played JV lacrosse. I was on the Speakers Committee. I was social chairman at SDT. I did internships at Ellis Hospital and an Albany radio station. I explored what piqued my interest."
