Where would you move to if you could live anywhere?
hmmm… I like it out here. ???? But if NYC and LA could just get, geographically, a little closer together without losing the entire middle of the United States, that would be awesome.
What is one food you cannot stand?
Slimy okra!
What do you listen to on your commute?
Democracy Now! for news and if I’m in the mood for music, it bounces between Emile Sande and Nicki Minaj.
What was the first play you ever did?
Macbeth in fourth grade.
Which of Shakespeare’s characters are you most like and why?
Rosalind! In a different day and age, I would totally be the one to dress more masculine and venture out into the great outdoors with nothing but some wit, a smile, and a metaphor!
Where was the coolest place you ever visited?
The Himalayas in India.
Did you ever have a celebrity crush?
Yes- Taraji P. Henson
Are you a sports fan?
When the Women’s world Cup happens, my wife requires me to be a soccer fan.
Are you usually early or late?
I arrive on time ????
What skill would you like to master?
SOOOOO MANY!!! I would love to hang glide, speak Spanish, become an excellent archer, fix cars, learn my way around power tools, master Photoshop, become an excellent ventriloquist…
What’s your dream role?
A complex one with lots of lines.
What food do you crave?
A lovely mix of Raisinets, jelly beans, and candy corn.

Having average size bellies and waistlines.

One where I could fly.
