What is your favorite vacation spot and why? Rome, Italy. I have a deep love of all things Classical Antiquity and specifically Roman history. Their art, architecture, mythology and history are extremely fascinating to me. I spent one week in Rome and would love to return!
Name something on your bucket list. Visit the Louvre
Who is your favorite superhero and why? Thor. We look a lot alike -- people say he is my doppelgänger.

Name one of your hobbies? I was not an athlete in school but I got into CrossFit six years ago and it has quickly become my favorite hobby. I enjoy anything that gets my heart rate elevated.

What is one thing you avoid like the plague? Crowded places.
