In addition to being your chair at MSMUN, I staff a Chicago conference in December working in their simulations department. My favorite things include espresso, the Cold War, western business attire, and Joe Biden.

Travel Story: My dad′s an over the road driver and, once on a trip with him and my mom, we got stuck at Donner Pass. In the winter. Because of snow. It was a fairly surreal way to ring in the Millennium.
