What is your favorite TV show?

My favorite is the "Haunting of Hill House" because I love the horror genre. This show does a lot to not just be scary, but to also reveal the intersection of how trauma impacts us as adults and how scary that can be.

What is your favorite holiday?

Earth Day because it's an opportunity to celebrate the outside and go hiking.

Do you have a favorite dish you like to cook?

Almond-crusted lime chicken. It is an unexpected combination of things that just work.

Do you have a favorite band?

There's something about MisterWives that just turns my day around, no matter how I'm feeling.

What is your favorite piece of furniture?

A chair specifically for lounging on the porch — with a book and cup of tea in hand — because it's cozy and calm.
