Ramsey Hootman
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Be Alyosha, not Ivan.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Darth Vader. (And you thought I was going to say the Joker.)

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. This is a major tossup between Samuel Johnson and Alexander Hamilton. If it were Johnson, I'd just want to tag along for a while and listen in on his conversations. If it were Hamilton, I'd tell him how much I admire him, what an impact he's had on the world, and how he's changed my personal view of history.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Cheese. Definitely cheese.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I'm deeply passionate.
