What song pops up when you plug your headphones into your phone?

What advice would you tell your high school self?

"You did it right, don't change a thing. Even the bad stuff - it wasn't so bad" 

Your most bizarre talent?

I can move my second toe solitarily from the others 

Name a character trait you’ve inherited from your parents.

My mom’s aggressive type A personality

What would be your last meal?

A la ultra-feast from “The Office,” I'd have to have a multi-course final meal, consisting of:

  • Caesar salad
  • My great grandma’s Greek soup
  • Spicy Tuna Roll
  • Buffalo wings with blue cheese and extra blue cheese
  • My mom's pasta and meatballs with pepperoni
  • A cheese spread dessert (Brie, goat cheese and smoked Gouda, with fig preserve and almonds) 

What is your greatest fear?

Dying before my time - I'm a huge doomsday prepper. In any given situation, I have like 8 escape routes planned. I've looked up purchasing short range deploying parachutes and pedestrian bulletproof vests...

What is your motto?

"Just be better" 

Where are you most likely to splurge?

Shoes - I have so many, and yet never enough 

If you could have drinks with 3 people dead or alive, who would it be?

My Dad, My Uncle and My Dad's dad - my uncle and grandfather passed away before I was born. I'd want to have drinks with the three of them to see what their relationship was like.

First celebrity crush?

Nick Carter - he was so dreamy as a young Backstreet Boy

Celebrity doppelgänger?

I've gotten Sarah Jessica Parker and Amanda Bynes before. There was also one time I had the exact same face as a woman in a Groupon stock image - wish I could find it. It was actually creepy.
