WHAT WOULD YOUR DREAM VACATION BE?
Around the world in 80 days (or more, preferably more). It’s difficult for me to choose a singular place, I want to see it all! German castles, Amazon rainforests, grassy knolls of Scotland, Australian outback, the clear blue ocean waters of the South Pacific, the African savanna, the Northern Lights, and so much more. I also really, really, want to go on a successful whale watching trip. I need to see and appreciate their immense size in person.
WHAT’S SOMETHING PEOPLE WOULDN’T GUESS ABOUT YOU?
I prefer my music to be loud, fast, and aggressive-but-upbeat (two of my favorite bands being the Descendents and FIDLAR), which some people find surprising because of my quiet and subdued nature. Bonus fact: I was the biggest baby in the hospital when I was born, apparently big enough to be given the nickname “Jumbo” from the nurses... luckily that nickname didn’t stick!
WHAT’S THE BEST PLACE YOU HAVE EVER VISITED?
Japan! I have family there, so that’s always a good excuse to visit, but I’m also a huge fan of the food and the culture. I’m hoping to go back soon.
WHO IS THE BEST BAND AND TO SEE LIVE?
My favorite bands to see live tend to be small local bands. I have a lot more fun at local shows in a tiny, dingy dive bar setting with my friends than I do in a massive arena seated 100 rows away from the stage. Ask me about my favorite local bands if you want to tag along sometime!
IF YOU HAD TO WATCH ONE SPORT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
Please, no! I have to commit to watching sports for life!?
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE OUTDOOR ACTIVITY?
Hiking, especially on trails that are less traveled and a little challenging. It doesn’t require much equipment and it’s relaxing to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. I’m excited to take my new pup on her first hikes with us soon!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?
What spare time? I always have something that needs to get done! But when I do choose to procrastinate, I like game nights with friends or finding a new arts-n-crafts project to take on (Current Project: Perler Bead Coasters). And now that I’m finally done with school, maybe I’ll find time to take up drawing again.
