What’s something surprising people might not know about you?
My favorite karaoke song is “All I Want for Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey. Jury is still out if I can hit the notes.
What’s your favorite way to unwind in your free time?
Catch a concert, cook a meal for friends, go out to a good meal or grab a drink at Garden District on 14th street.
Where would you love to travel in the world to gain inspiration?
I’d probably travel throughout Ethiopia to reconnect with my family and ancestral home.
What’s your favorite thing about your hometown?
When I say I’m from Alexandria, people are like “oh Old Town?” or “Oh like TC Williams from Remember the Titans” and I then go on a 10-minute diatribe of how Alexandria is split between the City of Alexandria and Fairfax County and how my HS was fully integrated and actually beat TC in that game!
Who is someone that inspires you right now?
Beyoncé – I haven’t turned off Renaissance since it came out and would like to know how to replicate that type of resonance with our client campaigns (who am I kidding that’s not possible.)
