1. What is your first memory of the Internet?
AOL Free-Trial “Frisbees” that we’d get in the mail every couple days – They flew forever! I’ll also never forget trying to do anything online in a house of 6 people when a phone call would kick you off the Internet.

2. Favorite lakes memory? What does being on the water mean to you?
I’ve always loved water since I taught myself to swim. I’d live in it if I could. My favorite lake memory would have to be when I asked my dad if I could take his canoe — which is older than I am, and has a huge dent in it – out on the lake, and he replied with, “If it floats, you can have it.” Spoiler alert: It did.

3. How many cups of coffee do you drink per day?
Nada… I don’t have a mug.

4. Most used app on your phone?

5. If you were a cartoon character – Which one would you be?
Vegeta from Dragonball Z, albeit a much less angry version.

6. Favorite movie quote that best describes you?
“This isn’t life, it’s just stuff. And it’s become more important to you than living. Well, honey, that’s just nuts.” – American Beauty

7. Childhood dream job?
Starting when I was 7, I would stay up late watching SNL, and I’ve wanted to be a stand-up and/or improv comedian ever since. I’m currently working on both!
