What is your hidden talent?
I’m a pretty darned good softball pitcher, and I make a mean Cosmo martini (or so I’m told).
What was your dream job as a child?
I had two – advertising and being an architect. Really – no lie! In terms of the future, when life gets tough I think about being a bartender in a beachside bar on a Caribbean island.
If you were stranded on an island what 3 things would you take with?
Baked kibbe (a Lebanese food), sweet tea (iced of course), and my iPad loaded with my favorite movies.
If you could have one super power, what would it be?
To fly – that way I could fly to a sunny beach whenever I want.
What’s your theme song?
Bruce Springsteen’s “Born to Run” – lots of great energy and fun, but with a serious side and deep lyrics mixed in.
