What is your dream job?

My dream job is to be the General Manager of the Boston Celtics.

If you had to describe yourself in three words, what would they be?

Hmm… I would have to say I’m kind, funny, and different.

What is the weirdest thing about you?

The weirdest thing about me is that I was born with a hole in my aorta valve, and when I got older I had surgery to repair it.

Take us through your ideal date.

My ideal date would be to go scuba diving at one of the Top 50 diving spots in the world, such as the Cocos Islands in Costa Rica. Scuba diving is one of my favorite things to do.

What song is currently stuck in your head?

I have had “7&7” by Turnpike Troubadours stuck in my head for a while now!
