What's your favorite type of trip to lead, and why?
Sea Kayaking - I'm a water person and sea kayaking is a great way to be on the water.  There are lots of options because the trips are self-supporting and the basic skills aren't difficult to teach and learn, so even beginners can have fun.

If you could only make one BOC meal for an entire trip, what would it be?
Burrito night.

What is your favorite place to visit on a BOC trip?
Little Snow Island in Quahog Bay- it's part of the Maine Island Trail system with a beautiful campsite and an osprey nest.

Would you rather have to walk around campus wearing a green monster backpack or a spray skirt?
A spray skirt- it would probably be more comfortable.

Do you have any advice for the incoming first year class?
Try new things!  I realized that I wanted to become a leader after taking a chance and going on some awesome canoe day trips.  Get out of your comfort zone and see what happens.
