Who, living or dead, would you like to eat dinner with the most? And why?
My grandma. She’s the best cook I know, so the food would be fantastic, especially her infamous cream pie. Plus, she’s also my favorite person in the world, so I know we would have a great time.

Who or what inspires you?
I am constantly listening to music throughout my day, everywhere from the car to the kitchen. I like to use different genres of music to brighten my mood and as a soundtrack to my daily activities. Music plays a big role in inspiring me throughout my workday, keeping me energized and focused. My all-time favorite artist is Chris Cornell, the lead singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave, but I also enjoy other rock music, EDM, rap, and even classical when the mood is right.

What is one thing on your bucket list and will you accomplish it?
I want to own one of Bob Ross’s original paintings. Ever since I discovered Bob Ross and his show the Joy of Painting, I was obsessed with his beautiful paintings and, more than anything, his soft and cheery demeanor. One day, I will track down one of his paintings and hang it from a wall in my house.

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
Skydiving. I went to Pepperell, MA with a few friends, and it was terrifying. I can still vividly remember the moment, where after we had achieved our optimal jump elevation, that the instructor gets up and walks over to the door of the plane, and opens it up, exposing the largest drop I’ve ever seen in my life. You are so high up, the height itself barely even registers in your mind, since the planet’s surface is so impossibly far below. All that being said, I would absolutely go again.
