What is your favorite place in the world?
Beside my hometown Wayne, Pennsylvania, I’m in love with the city of Sevilla in Spain. The locals are so kind, it’s full of astounding architecture and the food is incredible…especially the sangria!
What is a pastime you wish would make a comeback and why?
Handwritten notes and snail mail; it’s way more exciting and personal than receiving emails.
If you could have an endless supply of any food, what would you choose?
Coffee and anything coffee-flavored: Ice cream, yogurt—you name it.
Do you have any hidden talents?
I played rugby for six years, excel at Pinterest DIY’s and claim to share twin telepathy with my twin brother—but I think it’s just coincidence!
Who is your favorite fictional character?
It’s a tie between Abbi and Ilana of Comedy Central’s Broad City. They’re a hilarious duo.
You are stranded on an island, what 3 things do you bring?
My family, an endless supply of books and a whole lot of sunblock.
