WHERE DID YOU GROW UP?
I grew up in Bridgman, Michigan - If we were in person I would shamelessly hold my hand up and show you where that is (it’s a Michigander thing). It’s a very small town on Lake Michigan that thrives on tourism and craft beer. 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE AND WHY?
Dumb and Dumber - The movie with the best one-liners. No matter how many times you watch, it is still hilarious. “Yeah, we’re in the Rockies”
 
WHAT WOULD YOUR DREAM VACATION BE?
A dream vacation would be the perfect combination of relaxation and adventure. I don’t think that would need to be anywhere in particular as long as it’s somewhere new.
 
WHAT’S SOMETHING PEOPLE WOULDN’T GUESS ABOUT YOU?
I love punk music. More specifically I love 80’s and 90’s punk - I want it live, loud, hard, and fast. That usually catches people by surprise. 
 
WHAT BOOKS ARE ON YOUR NIGHTSTAND?
The Stand by Stephen King, a classic Calvin & Hobbes, House of Leaves, & The Happiness Advantage. Horror, comics, satire, self-help. I like options and every type of genre. 

WHAT DO YOU DO TO RELIEVE STRESS? 
I either lift heavy weights or paint my nails – it’s called balance. I also like to build things, there’s something fascinating about power tools and figuring out how things are constructed.
