6382_1117553824385_8087215_nWhere did you grow up?

Right down the road in Concord.


What book that you read when you were younger have the biggest impact on your life?

As cliché as it may be, as a kid, I read the Harry Potter series several times through. I also read the entire Hardy Boys series in 8th grade on a dare.


If you were to choose a completely different career path, what would it be?

Is that still an option? I’d probably be a nurse or go in to non-profit work. I always thought working for Habitat for Humanity would be really great.


Where is the best place to eat in the (ex. Kannapolis, Chapel Hill) area?

Chapel Hill – I am all about some Mediterranean Deli. Concord – I’ve always loved going to R&R barbecue with my family.

I loved visiting the Glastonbury Tor on my trip to the UK.


What is your favorite souvenir that you brought back on one of your trips?

I’ve got a hand-made cowboy hat I bought from an 84 year old native at 13,000 ft while traveling over Imogene pass in Colorado. It was one of the coolest experiences I’ve ever had and the hat is a great reminder.


Where haven’t you traveled that you would want to go?

I would have to say New Zealand is at the top of my list.


What is your favorite food?

It’s a dead tie between chimichanga’s and lamb and beef gyros.


What book/movie/podcast are you currently hooked on?

Do TV shows count? Supernatural is my new Netflix guilty pleasure. I’m currently reading the illustrated version of A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking and really geeking out.

My White German Shepherd named Blu!


EXTRA: Add one random fact about yourself, something that may surprise people.

From the age of 7 until freshman year of college I wanted to become a Supreme Court Justice.
