What’s the best part of being one of the most statuesque people at Penn?

Being plated in copper and getting lots of pictures taken with tourists standing in front of me.

Worst?

Birds pooping on my face and building nests on most of my body parts.

How glamorous is the life of a “Reliquary” model?

Well when I’m not sippin on Cristal in a hot tub overflowing with supermodels, I’m usually out fistpumping at the hottest clubs in West Philadelphia in a suit completely made of 100 dollar bills.

Any backstage secrets you’re willing to dish?

No unfortunately the first main rule of Dzine2Show is that I’m not really allowed to talk about Dzine2Show.

How do you calm your nerves before you strut down the runway?

I don’t. I’m extremely nervous every time I do my little turn on the catwalk. Yea on the catwalk.

If you could strut your stuff to any music you wanted, what would be on the playlist?

Huey Lewis and the News. Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when Sports came out in ’83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He’s been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far much more bitter, cynical sense of humor.

How do you maintain that top-model physique?

It’s quite simple actually. Any time during the day where I normally would have a meal I just substitute it with nothing.

Do you have any guilty pleasures?

Undressing my life size Macaulay Culkin action figure.

Describe your perfect date.

Good-looking.

What is the way to your heart?

Through my superior or inferior vena cava.

Are you a fashionista or just a pretty face?

Neither.

Are you involved in any clubs or associations at Penn?

Pennchants Acapella, Singing and playing guitar for a band called “The English Patients,” and UPenn competitive napping.

Do you have any athletic prowess? If so, please explain.

Woah, that’s way too personal. How dare you ask me that, we just met.
