Q + A

What is your favorite band or music artist?

I love 80’s music and in particular Cyndi Lauper. A lifelong fan from “Time after Time” to the Kinky Boots musical. While I’m a little too old for the mosh pit these days, you may find me pogoing at my standing desk to The Clash or Blondie on any given day.

What is your favorite ice cream flavor? Or dessert in general?

If I could only have on desert for the rest of my life I would eat watermelon chunks. I do love ice cream, especially strawberry, but watermelon is my go to desert if I have a choice. SO GOOD.
