Administrative Services Supervisor, Campus Safety & Security

Where would you choose to live if you had to leave the country?
Scotland. My ancestors were from Scotland, and I love bagpipes and Scottish castles. It would be great waking up to the sound of bagpipes.

If you could do something dangerous just once with no risk, what would you do?
I have been a swimmer my whole life and actually was a competitive swimmer from when I was very young through college. I would give anything to swim with whales – specifically hold on to one and breach with it. That would be cool.

What’s your favorite thing to find in your mailbox?
An unexpected check.

Paul Boyd
Professor, MBA Program, School of Business

Where would you choose to live if you had to leave the country?
One of two places. First, Switzerland, because I love the mountains, and I love to ski. I actually honeymooned there too. And second, one of the South Pacific islands. As much as I love the mountains, I’m a desert boy at heart since I grew up in Scottsdale, Arizona. Maybe I could winter in one location and summer in the other.

If you could do something dangerous just once with no risk, what would you do?
I would go on a spacewalk. I’ve always been a fan of science fiction.

What’s your favorite thing to find in your mailbox?
Anything from my daughter. She’s a teenager and just got her driver's license, so I rarely hear from her. She and my wife just went away together, and she sent me a postcard. It was so nice.

Eileen Maraia
Starbucks Manager (Pine Street location)

Where would you choose to live if you had to leave the country?
I’ve traveled a lot with my mother and sister, and we’ve taken a lot of cruises. And my favorite place that we visited was Venice so that’s where’s I would go. Such a beautiful city.

If you could do something dangerous just once with no risk, what would you do?
I would sky dive. My friend did it when she turned 50 - it was on her bucket list. So if there was no risk involved, that’s what I would do.

What’s your favorite thing to find in your mailbox?
Pictures of my grandchildren. I have three, and they live out in California.
