Something interesting most people don't know about me: I had the (mis)fortune of having three sets of teeth growing up (not like a shark, though%u2026), which made for a lot of extracted teeth and many years of braces.
Favorite country I've traveled to and why: Tie between Ecuador and New Zealand%u2014they both have amazing natural beauty, friendly cultures and fascinating histories.
Favorite food: I love Thai cuisine, and also pizza of all shapes and sizes--not very exciting, I know, but the ultimate comfort food for me.
