Bayside's coolest-geek, Screech was a laid-back and at times clueless, nerd. At Bayside, his greatest hobby (outside raising an ant farm) was pursuing Lisa Turtle. Despite the constant rejection, Screech never let it get him down. He was loyal and proved himself a great friend. Screech was accepted to Emerson, Princeton, Duke, Cal Tech, USC, and Clemson, but left Bayside and headed to Cal U.
