I’m so sick of: breaks in television seasons.
The four guests at my fantasy dinner party would be: my dad, who is no longer with us, and the rest of my family.
My hobbies are: I wish I could break the accountant stereotype and say something crazy like mountain climbing, but I enjoy different types of puzzles, cross-stitching and reading.
The last book I read was: The Reckoning by Kelly Armstrong. It’s a bit embarrassing, but I like to do as little thinking as possible when I read to relax.
I wish I knew how to: play the piano, like my big brother.
My worst habit is: putting off projects that I am worried about.
Nobody knows I: sing show tunes, loudly, when I am home alone.

My guilty pleasure is: silly games on my phone.
I drive a: GMC Envoy.
I’d like to be driving: an electric car.

If I could change one thing about Denton, it would be: no more one-way streets!
