What cheese best describes you?
Gorgonzola. I really like the way that name kind of rolls off the tongue.
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
What’s your worst habit?
I’m too organized.
What’s your favorite place to hear live music in Bakersfield?
The Crystal Palace.
If you had one more hour in the day, what would you do with it?
Hang out with my family.
When did you last laugh?
This morning—a lot. Just watching silly YouTube and Vine videos. I like getting stupid laughs to start the day, set the tone.
What’s your favorite piece of art in the Bakersfield Museum of Art?
I would say anything in our sculpture garden.
What’s the strangest thing in your medicine cabinet?
Gold Bond Powder.
What’s your least favorite household chore?
It’s your last meal. What do you eat?
Pizza. [Topping?] Pepperoni.
