What is your go to karaoke song?

Karaoke makes me sweat. I’ve only done it once when I lived in Hanoi – it was an Abba song. I was locked in a Karaoke room with 20 Vietnamese dudes and lots of rice wine. They take Karaoke VERY seriously. On the other hand I love watching other people do Karaoke.

PB&J

Karaoke – see above.

Which talent would you most like to have?

Wit and telling me what I don’t want to hear.

What is your motto?

They did not know it was impossible, so they did it.

Where are you most likely to splurge?

Plane tickets

If you could live at any point in history what point would that be - and why

One of my favorite pictures is a group of people staring in awe the first time they saw a TV turn on when it was still new technology. I would love to travel back and see people's visceral reactions to the first train or plane or electric light. 

What is a piece of information people would be surprised to hear about you

 I once ate the still beating heart of a snake.

Your worst habit

I'm a knuckle cracker.

One thing you have always wanted to do and have not yet done

If you could have any super power, what would it be?

I was a huge fan of Heroes. It’s a tie – either the ability to read and retain all information – like speaking Japanese because I read a book on it or to learn any movement by seeing it once – think black belt in Karate brought to you by YouTube.
