What’s your favorite musical?
My favorite musical has to be MISS SAIGON. I am a history nerd and a hopeless romantic, so that combined with a huge helicopter on stage really does it for me.

What is special about the place you grew up?
I grew up right here in Cleveland and love it so much I could quite honestly become an ambassador for the city. I got to witness the transformation of downtown from what it once was to what it is today. The city has never thrived more… bringing in people from all over the country. Showing others what Cleveland has to offer and seeing them appreciating and loving it for what it is, is what makes it so special for me!

What super power would you like to have?
If I had any superpower in the world it would be to teleport! With my schedule I am constantly commuting all over the city, and when I do have free time I travel as much as I can. If I had the power to teleport I wouldn’t have to worry about traffic or money and I could go ANYWHERE in the world at any moment…that would make my life SO much easier.

What movie can you watch over and over without ever getting tired ot?
I have two. I could watch “50 first dates” with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore every day and love it even more than the last time I watched it. The plot is SO good and Adam Sandler is hilarious. I think its so good that it should be a musical…but that’s just me.
The second is “The Goonies.” A film about a whole bunch of kids on an epic treasure hunt that concludes with an epic waterslide?? What more could you ask for in a film? It’s so culturally, and aesthetically significant that it has to be my favorite movie.

What is the most recent show you've binge watched?
I recently just finished NARCOS on Netflix and I have to say it is one of the best series I have EVER watched. I haven’t stopped talking about it for weeks.
