Educational – I’ve learned so much from the people I work with and the projects we’ve done. I feel like it’s something new every day.
3. What originally drew you to FUEL?

Instagram all day, every day. Pretty pictures of food, pets, and places to visit? I’ll take it.
8. If you could meet/interview one person (dead or alive) who would it be?
I would be honored to share a meal and conversation with Anthony Bourdain.
9. What would be your last meal request?
A medium-rare ribeye, loaded baked potato, Caesar salad, and glass of rich cabernet.
