Favourite Sport to play?
From a very early age, I’ve always loved playing hockey. Golf and fishing have also made their way onto the list.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I haven’t explored northern Europe yet. I’d also like to go back to Australia… 3 weeks there was not nearly enough!
Best place to get a burger?
In and Out Burger. All they offer is burgers and fries… they don’t do much – but they really nail what they do offer.
What languages do you speak?
I have travelled extensively through Latin America, and was at one point, fairly fluent in Spanish. It’s really rusty, but it comes out when I get the chance to use it for a few days in a row.

Call me crazy – but I like vanilla. When I feel adventurous, I just add toppings!
