What’s something people don’t know about you?
The second language class I took at school was American Sign Language (ASL). I was never fluent but could hold my own in small talk.
What’s one thing you haven’t done yet? What’s holding you back?
There are so many places in the world I still haven’t seen. Scotland probably sits at the top of my post-COVID list, but Greece is a close second.
What’s one thing you love about yourself? Have you always?
I’m a huge nerd, and yes, I’d say I’ve pretty much always owned it. My nerdoms are fairly diverse, spanning movies, tv shows, fiction, and comic books. I’m down to discuss Star Wars, Star Trek, Marvel & D.C. (comics, movies, and TV shows), Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Saga, Sandman, Doctor Who, the Parasolverse… the list goes on and on. I love most things with magic, adventure, mystery, and/or a supernatural/fantasy element, just so long as it isn’t scary 😉.
