If you could instantly become an expert in something, what would it be?

“Aerial athletics – I am in awe watching the aerial athletes in any cirque show performing trapeze, aerial silks, high bar, ropes, stunts, and tumbling. Their strength, flexibility, and spatial awareness are amazing. I took trapeze and aerial silk classes for a short while – so does this mean I was meant to join the circus?”

What song, album, or artist could you listen to on repeat?

“Pandora’s Melody Gardot Radio (but Red Hot Chili Pepper’s Radio for running). “

What is your favorite book?

“The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern – I get lost in another place and time, illusions, magic, and a family of unrelated characters. The intricate details of time at the turn of the 20th century along with two magicians competing their talents bring an unimaginable circus to life, but only at night.”
