Where are you from?

I grew up in Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia. Right now, I live in New York City, but I plan on moving back to LA next year ... I lived there for two years. But no matter where life takes me, I always know where home is—with the people that keep me grounded and complete my soul, and being in an atmosphere that gives me both comfort and freedom to face life's twists and turns. This is the reason why I don't go a day without my Pennsylvania pendant. I love spending time with my family, friends, and pets in Pennsylvania. I may not get the chance to visit as much as I'd like, but thankfully, wherever I go, I'm able to take "home" with me.

Any interesting hobbies we should know about?

Playing video games; hiking; shopping; eating M&Ms and Kit Kats; binge watching shows on Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu; spending time with friends and family; learning how to play the piano; horseback riding; taekwondo; playing Jeopardy on Alexa; snowboarding; rock climbing; being a beach bum; reading; and ... I started going to the gym recently.

Wildest thing that happened in 2019?

Packing all my belongings in two days and moving from LA to NYC.

What's your perfect date?

Go to a thrift store, pick out each other's outfits, go to dinner in those outfits (no matter how ridiculous the outfits may look), and have great conversation during our meal.

Any last words?

Wear sunscreen, be kind to one another, get your pets spayed/neutered, will give hugs for M&Ms, looking forward to meeting you at the events—Autobots, roll out!
