If you had to live the life of a character in a song, which song would you choose?

As long as it’s not dude who borrowed Jeb’s rifle in “I Hung My Head,” I’m good with whatever.

Where would you most like to live or visit that you haven’t yet?

I’ve traveled a little, but most of what I’ve seen and experienced has been in the states. New York City would be my first choice.

What was the last thing that made you really mad?

The election and everything related that has come since.

Happy place

Are you an introvert or an extrovert?

A bit of both. I can be an extrovert, but as I’ve grown older, I’ve become quieter bit by bit.

What’s your favorite culinary spice?

Salt. It’s the key to flavor.

What was your favorite childhood toy?

Pen and paper — I loved to draw as a kid.
