Interesting Facts:

If you could have any other fantasy career what would it be and why?

I would be a writer who covers food, drink, travel, and design. I find that when you venture out of your comfort zone, magic truly happens.

What’s your favorite travel destination, or where would you like to go?

Rome is my favorite travel destination. I find it amazing to be standing in the ruins of what used to be the epicenter of the world 2,000 years ago, and then looking across the street to see modern day hubbub and business as usual.

What was your first job?

When I was 10 years old, I shared a paper route with my sister. Dad ensured we were up before the sun to deliver the Sunday Times.
