How long have you been at BCM?

7 years

Where were you born?

Los Angeles

What is your favorite kind of food?

Toss up between Italian and TexMex.

What is your favorite restaurant in Houston, and at that restaurant your favorite dish?

I live a block from Chatters on Waugh, so I'm there quite often. The ahi tuna bites and caprese salad are delicious. They have a great weekend brunch, too.

What type of music do you listen to?

Rock, alternative and 80s

What is your dream vacation?

A deserted tropical island…white sand, turquoise water, and no email access.

What is your favorite TV show?

Modern Family

Complete this sentence: Most people wouldn't know that I…

I paint abstract art. My family and several friends own pieces I've done, and I have a few hanging in my house as well. I wish I had time to paint more often; it's a great way for me to exercise the right side of my brain.

What are some of your personal hobbies?

Running. I've run 10 marathons, including the 2010 Boston Marathon. I also enjoy reading and home décor/improvement projects.

Last book you read?

"Worst Case" by James Patterson

Any pets?

My precious cat Millie, who is 18 years old. She is a diva, and I'm just her well-trained and doting human.
