I use my storytelling superpowers to raise awareness of the amazing feats of the numerous students, faculty and staff super heroes here at the UW through strategic media placements.

What superpower would you choose?

If I had to change my superpower or add another, I would be invisible so I couldĀ sneak into reporters’ offices and whisper sweet nothings about the UW in their ears. Plus, if I was invisible, I could basically fly for free (no one would see me) and travel all over the world (but only when I wasn’t busy telling stories about great UW people).

What is your dream vacation?

My first trip would likely be Spain and Portugal. Just because.
