Ever since reading Erik Larson’s The Devil in the White City, I’ve been fascinated with the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893.

2. What is your favorite form of exercise?
Running. I’m addicted.

3. What is one of your favorite quotes?

Springsteen - Thunder Road
Gladiator Soundtrack – Now We Are Free
Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman - Time To Say Goodbye

5. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
I’d love to be able to sew and design clothes.

6. If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?
I would pay off my student loans, and then I’d travel the world. There are so many places that I’d like to visit- Brazil, Belize, Greece, Spain, New Zealand…
