What are your favorite summer traditions or a favorite summer memory?

Oh, I love summer and summer in the Midwest is always special. I like farm stands, fresh produce, hikes, yard sales, and sitting on my porch. Sprinkle in drive-in movies and river float rides, if possible. My most recent favorite summer memory was seeing Phish again at Ruoff Music Center in Noblesville.

What board game do you always win?

It depends on who I’m playing with, but probably Scrabble or Tetris.

Do you have a unique hobby or talent? How did you discover it?

It's not wildly unique, but I do like to make some of my own clothing. I learned how to do a lot of it from online tutorials and many YouTube videos.

What is your favorite ice cream flavor and topping?

That’s a tough one. The last ice cream flavor I really liked was Van Leeuwen's Vegan Cookie Crumble Strawberry Jam. No need for toppings with that one.
