If you could star in any musical, which would you choose
Hands down it would be Newsies. I’m a sucker for a good take-on-the-man story. Who doesn’t want to help Jack Kelly take down Pulitzer and Hearst while singing and dancing?
What’s the best city you’ve ever visited?
Istanbul left quite an impression. I can see why people fought over it for centuries.
What are you irrationally afraid of?
Drowning in the ocean. It just seems like it would be the absolute worst.
What languages (besides English) do you speak?
I took a combined four years of French in high school and college and none of it stuck. Years later, I was in a café in Paris and when it was my turn to order I just froze.
What is your superhero name?
Drooby Doo and my sidekick would be a dog named Scrappy. We’re unexpected heroes with obvious inspiration…
As a five-year-old, what did you say you wanted to be when you grew up?
A train conductor. I even had a full-on outfit and whistle.
What’s the scariest thing that’s ever happened to you?
At a previous job, I had to carry a handwritten $1 million check from a high profile donor to the bank. I made it, but those two blocks were absolutely terrifying.
What’s your professional theme song?
Aaliyah’s “Try Again.” It’s about how we get back up that matters.
What’s your all-time favorite book?
Perks of Being a Wallflower. My best friend and I once stayed up all night taking turns reading it to each other.
If you could marry a food, what would it be?
My dad makes a BBQ salmon to die for. I have a hard time ordering salmon anywhere else because it just doesn’t compare.
