Favorite food: Dal Tadka, I used to eat it every day, and would like to, still.

Favorite book and why: The Lives of the Twelve Caesars by Suetonius – it is a titillating gossip rag disguised as historical literature.

Favorite thing to do when not at TC: Study for my classes and visit local estate sales on weekends.  

DEI Contribution/Highlight: I proposed the creation of a Reflection Room on the third floor, received approval to allocate resources towards it, and made it happen.

Why is diversity, equity, and inclusion important to you? Having witnessed the capitalist hegemony of American companies in other parts of the world as they “grow their markets,” I know it is imperative to understand other ways of being and knowing in the face of this dominance.
