What is your hometown?

I split my time growing up between West Newfield, Maine where my mother, stepfather and half-sister live on a mile-long dirt road on Mirror Lake, and Saco, Maine where my father’s side of the family lives.

Which famous person do people say you look like?

I hear that I not only look like Zooey Deschanel, but that I’m also very much like her character on the TV show ‘New Girl’. I’ll take it because it’s much better than being compared to, say, Steve Buscemi.

What song is stuck in your head right now?

The Byrds’ version of “You Ain’t Going Nowhere”

What word or phrase do you never, ever have to hear again?

It’s hard to pick just one…so I’m going to do 2: “stoked” and “YOLO” – please, please stop.

Which movie have you seen the most times?

It’s A Wonderful Life. I’m a sucker for Jimmy Stewart.

What if your favorite ice cream flavor?

Since ice cream and I don’t get along, my go-to is caramel crème frozen yogurt.

What is the punch line of your favorite joke?

I am the worst joke teller in the history of the world, so therefore I have no favorite joke or punch line.

What is the last book you read?

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

Which board game or video game best describes your life?
