THE RANDOM

What is your favourite food?

Sushi! I’ll also eat an entire jar of olives in one sitting.

What is a skill you are working on currently?

Trying to live in the present has always been a challenge for me. Lately, I’ve been trying to practice my grounding and mediation skills to help me stay in the here and now.

What do you do in your spare time?

I’m a classically trained pianist so I practice a lot! I’m currently working on Beethoven’s Piano Sonata no. 8 in C minor. I’m also a big foodie so I love to cook and try new recipes. I also like to swim, draw and write music.

What is your dream car?

I’ve never been a car person, but one time I saw someone driving a baby blue Bently and I thought it was pretty cool.

What is your go-to for a good laugh?

South Park (or the comedic stylings of Tom Segura).
