Where did you grow up?
I was born in Sylva, North Carolina but moved to the shark attack capital of the world, New Smyrna Beach, Florida, when I was 7. New Smyrna is a quaint little beach town that’s got a great live music scene, great bars and great people. One of my favorite things to do there was drive up and down the beach with my friends.

Anything with chocolate!
It’s got to be The Last of the Mohicans! It’s an epic period piece that’s got everything from action and adventure to a love story. It’s a timeless film with the best soundtrack ever. My favorite quote from the film is “You be strong, you survive…You stay alive, no matter what occurs! I will find you. No matter how long it takes, no matter how far, I will find you.”
My favorite book series is The Dresden Files.
