I just finished The Staircase and Making A Murderer (yes, I was late to the party), The Ranch, new stand up comedy specials (and I routinely re-watch my favorite specials) and I watch Rules of Engagement constantly.

 

 

10. What’s the coolest thing you’re working on right now?

In my personal life, the coolest thing I am working on is raising my 2 boys (ages 11 and 8) to be good humans who respect authority, do well in school, participate in extra curricular activities and have lots of fun!  At work, I am enjoying planning with Adrianna Maldonado on ways to expand our source of work to local TPAs and adjusters.

 

 

11. Who would you most like to swap places with for a day?

I don’t have a specific person, but whoever it is would would spend their days traveling, being with animals, eating good food and have season tickets to the Dodgers games.

15. What’s your secret talent that no one knows about?

It is more of a stupid talent, but my semi-photographic memory enables me to remember license plate numbers from cars.  I am also really good at assembling almost anything that has written instructions.

John F. Kennedy, Jerry Seinfeld, David Spade and Sebastian Maniscalco.
