College Football, hiking, and travel

6. What’s your favorite book? Why? 

No One is Talking About This”. Hard to explain… it’s a comedy that gets really deep and dark and has the best writing about the internet I’ve ever read… plus, it’s very short, so check it out!

7. What, if anything, are you currently binge watching? Or, What has been your favorite show that you binge watched? 

Finishing “Bachelor in Paradise” this weekend. Pulling for Joe and Serena. No spoilers! Favorite all-time was “Westworld”, but only season 1.

Killed her husband. Whacked him.

9. What’s your usual order at Starbucks? 

Dirty chai latte, extra shot.

I study yeast so this is a tough one… wine because of the history and the intensity of the craft. We’ve been making wine for at least 9,000 years!
