Q + A

What are your favorite hobbies outside of work?

I enjoy traveling. Even if I don’t have the chance to travel somewhere myself, I live vicariously through other people’s photos—and make note of the best spots to visit! In my free time, I also like to write poetry, fiction, and blog posts. And when the weather is nice, I love playing tennis!

What is your favorite ice cream flavor? Or dessert in general?

I love sweets, and I can list several favorite desserts. I’d say top three are key lime pie, tres leches cake, and macarons.

If you found a genie in a magic lamp, what would your three wishes be?

I wish for 3 more wishes…just kidding. To be fair, I’d wish for:

  1. Endless airplane tickets
  2. One of my writing pieces to become a movie
  3. End to world hunger
What is your favorite place you’ve been to, and where do you want to go next?

Donegal, Ireland, is such a pastoral and luscious green town—definitely one of my favorite places. Haiti’s beaches also top my list! Next, I want to travel to the Amalfi Coast in Italy (no, not trying to be basic—I’ve been dreaming of that place since before it became Pinterest famous).
