Q + A

What is your favorite band or music artist?

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.

Dogs or cats? Do you have any pets, if so, details?

 I am through and through a cat person as they are both loved and feared by their owners and peers alike.

What is your favorite dessert?

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.

What are your favorite hobbies outside of work?

Outside of work I love to read, listen to podcasts (2 Dope Queens is my jam!), and find new places to eat.
