Q & A: 

I am ridiculously good at… being mischievous.

If I never had to work again, I would…Split time between volunteering and on a sailboat in the Mediterranean.

My musical talents include…Playing the A-team theme song on a recorder.

My favorite way to spend the weekend or a Sunday afternoon is...watching football with family/friends and snacks.

It would be impossible for me to give up… a little adventure now and again.
