How long have you been at MUSC: Since January 2007.
If you could change careers, what would you be doing: Own a small farm/vineyard/plantation somewhere in southern Europe.

How do you feel sharing a name with a tropical storm/hurricane: Since Hurricane Nana has not formed yet, I can’t wait to see how it will develop. I hope it will not be too destructive.
