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.

I wish I knew how to: play the piano, like my big brother.
