What is your favorite thing about working in the College of Business?
My favorite thing about working in the College of Business is the people. The people are pretty great. It is fun to be able to coordinate projects with people who are willing to work as a team. I have never had a boss as cool as Bryan Hoffman before and it’s been good to get along with him.
What is your dream job?
I would someday like to start up my own company in clean energy. I would like to work with something like solar panels. I think owning my own company would be really awesome.
Do you have any hobbies?
None … just kidding! I like to fish, hunt, and do outdoor activities. I’m a big sports fan and like anything Minnesota. I’m also big into Fantasy Football League, for which I’m a commissioner.
What is your favorite place to hang out in Mankato?
My favorite place to hang out in town is Tav on the Ave. It’s very good, but it’s getting to be a little more expensive. They have a new menu with a great burger selection and great walleye sandwich. Plus the wings are great and after 9 p.m. they’re 60 cents… I think they’re much better than Buffalo Wild Wings. P.S. Traditional is the way to go for the wings.
