How do you spend your free time?
In my free time, I really enjoy attending live theatre. Whether it’s a professional tour here in Chicago or even a local production, there is nothing like the magic of a live performance.
What is your favorite month of the year and why?
My favorite month of the year would have to be December. I love the holiday season and everything that comes with it, from the decorations, to the emphasis on gratitude.
What’s the best piece of advice you ever received?
The best piece of advice I’ve ever received is to trust my intuition in every aspect of my life. I’ve found that making any type of big decision is less stressful when I trust my gut feeling.
