What are three words that describe you? I’m da bess

What is a talent that you possess? I have a pretty great internal compass. I can find my way around the inner city alright. For example, if we’re driving around town and we get lost, all I need to do is hang my head out the window until I can see some iconic buildings and then do some triangulation of my location and we’ll be good to go. And if that doesn’t work, I’m pretty quick on the draw with some Google maps.

What is your biggest fear? I’ve always feared a wardrobe malfunction whilst performing on stage.

What achievement are you most proud of? When I was born.

What are the perfect pizza toppings? I’m a big fan of a classic Meat Lovers pizza, but I am also very partial to pineapple and olives. Also, I will usually never pick “cheese” over a regular topping pizza. It’s a sad waste of pizza. It’s like eating spaghetti without any sauce. Or a PB&J without any peanut butter. Or jelly. I won’t stand for it.

What is your life motto? Adventure’s Out There!

What cheers you or relaxes you after a stressful day?  I usually try to hit the gym after a long day, but if I can’t make that happen I’ll usually be content with a solid nap. IN MY HAMMOCK. Or eating is good too.
