Favorite anecdote:
15 minutes of wait time before an opponent answered a pivotal Daily Double incorrectly, the TV time lapse, however, appears to be very short. I was sweating profusely.

Did Jeopardy! have any affect on your life:
I have achieved a modicum of status on campus, which is nice. Receiving respect from one's peers is a good thing.

Is there anything else you would like viewers to know about you:
It's only been three months since the tournament, and less than two since I was on television. Jeopardy! was the most interesting event in my life for the last few years. Get back to me on this one when I'm older :)
