To start a conversation with me, ask me: About scalloping!

Something interesting most people don't know about me: Durham is the farthest from the ocean I've ever lived! I was born and raised on a small island off the west coast of Florida.

Favorite food: It's a tie between mashed potatoes and jianbing: a spicy/sweet Chinese street food crepe.
