WHERE DID YOU GROW UP?
In Boulder! I was born on Long Island, NY, but made the move west when I was young. After doing my undergraduate in Cleveland, OH, and graduate school in Irvine, CA, it is great to be back home!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE AND WHY?
I can’t really pick a single favorite… I love a movie that tells an engaging story (especially if it has captivating and well-produced audio)! Some of my favorites are Gravity, Inception, The Prestige, and Star Trek. I love stories that engage my imagination and make me think.
WHAT WOULD YOUR DREAM VACATION BE?
My favorite way to travel is to explore the local food – everything from street food to nice restaurants. I’m a huge foodie, and love to try new things, cuisines, and dishes.
IF YOU HAD TO WATCH ONE SPORT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
It would absolutely be college basketball. I grew up watching the Buffs Men’s basketball team with my family (we had season tickets), went to basketball camp, and still have a signed basketball from the 2000/2001 team.
WHERE IS YOUR FAVORITE PLACE TO EAT?
My favorite restaurants are fresh, local food… One of my favorites is Shine in Boulder, which specializes in sustainable, homemade, non-GMO, real good food!
