Omakase, Pokémon and a pet raccoon [...]

Share Article

The internet is vast. What’s your happy place?
Food is always my happy place, both online and IRL, and one of my favorite chefs to follow on Instagram is @GrossyPelosi! He makes Italian-American food, has great taste in home decor, and is a bundle of pure joy!

What’s your idea of a perfect meal?
This is particularly tough question because I want to eat everything! I would have to say sushi omakase, followed by a cheeseburger and fries for dessert.

Which fictional or historical character do you most relate to?
I’ve always felt that Monica from Friends is a kindred spirit, but she’s more of a neat freak than I am.

Who is your hero? (dead or alive)
My big sister Andrea is my hero and role model—she taught me about being a good person and having a strong work ethic. She’s been an ER nurse for over 20 years, has volunteered around the world to rebuild communities that have been struck by natural disasters, and is an amazing daughter and mother.

Imagine that every type of creature, real or imaginary, is tameable. What would you bring home?
I’ve always wanted a pet raccoon.

You receive an all-access pass to one city. Where do you go?
Tokyo, hands down! It would be a dream to have an all-access, insider pass to all those hidden restaurants and tiny speakeasies.

Technology makes Westworld-style theme parks a reality. What “world” would you buy a ticket to?
Pokémon (first and second generations only, of course).

You’re granted a 25th hour every day. What do you do with it?

Whether or not you knew it at the time, at which moment in your life did you make the most pivotal decision?
The moment I decided to apply for a foodie app startup that I was a huge fan of; it was extremely intimidating and out of my comfort zone, but it was the start of my career path in marketing and turned into five years of fun and invaluable work experience.

Under-the-radar recommendation. What do you love that more people should? (Movie, book, artist, podcast, restaurant, etc.)
I think everyone should watch the HBO documentary/reality series “We’re Here.” Three successful drag performers visit small towns across America to mentor queer individuals and allies who don’t feel seen in their communities, and to put on a fabulous show on for the town. It’s heartwarming, moving, funny, informative, full of incredible art, and touches on a lot of important issues our country is facing.
