Q + A
My favorite music artist is the Queen herself, Beyoncé, having gotten my hands on her HBO special through guerrilla tactics while living in West Africa.
I am through and through a cat person as they are both loved and feared by their owners and peers alike.
My favorite dessert is cheesecake, though I’m a purist. I don’t like crazy flavors à la the Cheesecake Factory. Just a dollop of macerated strawberries will suffice.
Outside of work I love to read, listen to podcasts (2 Dope Queens is my jam!), and find new places to eat.
