Hometown My car would suggest Tennessee and my license would suggest Virginia but I claim Maryland. Something about that combination has got to be illegal!
College and major Lee University – B.S. in Telecommunications
As a kid, you dreamed of becoming: A fashion designer… until I realized wearing jerseys and team apparel is so much cooler!
Name one thing on your bucket list To one day live in Calgary or Toronto. I secretly think I’m Canadian.
If you were an animal, what would you be? I would be a monkey because: A) They are hilarious to look at, and B) They can get away with just about anything.
First CD/tape I’m pretty sure my first tape was a song entitled “Amber” and it’s not the one made famous by 311.
Favorite food

Maryland blue crabs steamed in copious amounts of Old Bay.

Favorite movie

Runaway Bride. Judge me.

Favorite pro/college sports team Both sides of my family are from Baltimore so don’t fault me for being an Orioles and Ravens fan. As for hockey, I’m a recovering Caps fan who saw the light in Canes Country.
Favorite type of music Whatever will make me look the most ridiculous while lip-syncing.
Favorite band

Too many choices!

Fun fact My first job was as a Fun Zone Attendant for the Frederick Keys… when I was 14! And the rest is, how you say, history…
