General Manager, Bin 702

What was your favorite subject in school?
Science, but not any of the sciences that were math-heavy (gross). I liked classes like geology and anatomy.

What is your go-to drink?
Beer. I love all styles – fruity, malty, yeasty, hoppy, bring it on.

Who was your childhood celebrity crush? 
Skeet Ulrich in Scream, and Paul Rudd in Clueless.

If you won $100 million, what would you do with it?
I’d buy a whole cul-de-sac of houses for all of my close friends and family to move into under the condition that they party with me all the time. After that, I’d open my own bar/restaurant.

What is your biggest pet peeve?
All of them – I’m a grump.

Which super power would you like to have?
The ability to fly. I really don’t like driving. Plus, I’d save a ton on airfare.

What is your favorite local band?
Leather Lungs. The guitarist is super easy on the eyes.

If you had to choose just one place to vacation every year for the rest of your life, where would it be?
France. My goal is to retire to the French countryside. I’m going to buy a big chunk of land and adopt a bunch of animals to hang out with, all while working on my dream home and eating a bunch of cheese (and wine, obviously).

What type of music do you like to listen to?
I listen to mostly new wave and post punk and my all-time favorite musician is David Bowie. My entire condo is decorated in miscellaneous Bowie things. It’s a borderline unhealthy obsession.

Do you believe in aliens?
Yes, of course.
