If you could be in the movie of your choice, what movie would you choose and what character would you play? Wow, that's a great question. Probably Good Will Hunting. Not just because I got my Doctorate in Mathematics, but because whenever my dad (Will) leaves I'm always trying to figure out where he went. Also, Robin Williams and Matt Damon, what could be a better duo?
