Q: If you could invite any three people to dinner, who would they be?
A: I would invite Steven Ray Morris, Karen Kilgariff, and Georgia Hardstark from the My Favorite Murder podcast. It is my favorite podcast and we would have wonderful conversations about true crime, victim advocacy, and cats.
Q: What is your favorite thing about NEEP?
A: I enjoy the people who work here.
Q: What book is currently on your nightstand?
A: A biography of Leonardo Da Vinci by Walter Isaacson. I’ve always been fascinated by his life, especially considering the mystery still surrounding it, despite the amount of writings he left behind.
Q: What’s something about you that would surprise us?
A: I am a “murderino”, or a true crime enthusiast who listens to the podcast “My Favorite Murder”. I enjoy the combination of comedy and true crime!
Q: If you could spend one week anywhere in the world, where would it be? Why?
A: I would spend one week in New Orleans because I have been there before and it is my favorite city in the U.S. A week is not a very long time, so I might not want to visit somewhere I’ve never been.
