If it was your last meal on Earth would be: Whataburger! Honey bbq chicken strip sandwich all the way.

What was the first concert you attended as a teenager:

San Antonio has their rodeo every year that brings tons of country singers. So the first concert I attended as a teenager was probably a random country star that I didn’t care too much about, but the first that I can remember and actually cared about was Hilary Duff.

A cruise through Europe! Ireland must be on the itinerary.

I worked for main event entertainment as a party host for awhile in highschool. It’s one of those places for kids that has bowling, laser tag, an arcade… fun things like that. That was definitely the worst job I have had. Trying to manage 20+ kids was a drag.

What’s a weird fact, accomplishment, or talent that you have that most people don’t know about:

I learned a lot about birds in my last couple of years of college. Birds do vary from region to region, but I can identify a decent amount of central Texas birds by sight and sound.

That’s tough because I love food. All the food. All the time. If I HAD to choose….. either my old stand by of some yummy, spicy mexican food. Or maybe something really decadent with lots of butter and truffle oil like a brown butter and truffle gnocchi.

Sheltered childhood! I never attended a concert as a teenager. But the first concert I went to in my early 20s was Jason Aldean and the Washington State Fair.

My first “real” job was working part time in a plastics factory when I was 15 or 16. I worked one day and became physically sick from the fumes so badly that I was in bed for 3 days after. I worked 1 day and never went back. I think my first paycheck may have been all of $25.

What’s a weird fact, accomplishment, or talent that you have that most people don’t know about:

I drove a race car for 1 season. I wasn’t very good at it, but it was a lot of fun!
