What would you be doing if you weren’t doing your current job?

What are you a big fan of that people wouldn’t necessarily guess that you’re a big fan of?

I’m a big fan of the Real Housewives franchise. Totally a guilty pleasure.

Why, what have you heard?

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

Time Travel

What celebrity would you absolutely HAVE to go up and say something to if you saw them out and about?

It probably be Josef Koudelka because he has spent most of his life as an exile of his country and traveled around with gypsies.

How closely are you connected to a famous person, and who is that person?

My friend’s cousin is Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Fear will only hold you back from wonderful adventures. Do more things that scare you.
