How long have you lived in Athens?
I have lived in Athens for about 6 years now.
What are your favorite things about living in Athens?
I love that I can always find new places in town to discover and interesting people from so many cultures and backgrounds. I can also appreciate that Athens is a great place to live for art and music lovers.
What are your favorite places to eat in town? Any specific dishes or items you’d like to mention?
I absolutely love Cali-N-Titos and Kelly’s Jamaican Food (both on Lumpkin Street)! Shokitini’s sushi and karaoke rooms are also great! Also any place with frozen yogurt.
What is your dream vacation?
I would love to travel to the Philippines one day. It would be great to see where my mother, grandmother, and my mother’s siblings grew up.
What makes you happy?
Really corny jokes and getting to learn more about people—which makes working at Daily a lot fun.
What are your favorite movies and TV shows?
I’m not sure if I could pick my favorites of all time—maybe Crash would be my favorite movie and maybe the first 2 seasons of Heroes would be my favorite TV shows. Right now, I am really enjoying The Walking Dead and I can’t wait for the next season of Game of Thrones.
What books/comics are you currently reading?
I am currently reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. So far I’m loving that it combines my love for video games and books set in a dystopian future. It was recommended to me by Andy, and Frankie recommended it to him. When I finish, I hope to recommend it to someone else at Daily.
If you had a super power, what would it be and why?
I would definitely want the ability to fly, but it would be for completely selfish reasons. 80% of my time spent flying would be used reaching things without using a ladder or asking for help. 10% of my flying time would be spent getting to places I need to be when I’m running late. 9% of my time would be spent on dunking on professional athletes. 1% of my time would be looking for a kitten to rescue and thereby becoming a hero of a small town. I would also refuse to fly higher than 10 feet in the air—way too risky after 10 feet.
When you shop at Daily, what are your favorite things to buy?
Avocados, Spinach, and local goat cheeses, shampoo and conditioner from Adama Minerals, Upton’s Chorizo, yummy Talenti gelato in the summer. I’m never without a bottle of Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar. Not only is it great on food, when diluted it makes a great facial toner and hair rinse.
What’s a secret ambition of yours?
To finish the movie Gremlins—long story. Also to finish grad school. I really need to do that too.
What’s wrong with the world?
Monopoly. Both the board game and the economic condition.
What’s right with the world?
Who are your heroes and why?
My mother and my maternal-grandmother. Growing up they were always showing me the value of hard work and loving others.
