In real life I…
Work part-time as Kitchen GE at CIC-Cambridge (I make sure food looks good in extensive break rooms at a start-up incubator). I also work part-time as event/staff promotion at Downeast Cider. I spend a lot of my time reading, watching movies/TV, drinking (apple juice), and speaking juuust soft enough to not quite be heard by Schwam. I love eating and trying new desserts though you can guarantee I’m eating ghetto pasta most days of the week.
Favorite pump up Jam:
Ohh it changes weekly, but right now, probably “Trap Queen” by Fetty Wap.
What awards did you win when you were younger?
“coach’s award” on my swim team when I was 11.**
Lots of stars on my elementary school field days sheet, yo.
** There was a girl on my swim team who couldn’t swim.
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I had four dream jobs, one (and a half) which is still attainable.
3. professional soccer player
4. cheese counter worker (THINK OF THE FREE CHEESE)
I once beat a man dressed in a penguin suit in a training knife fight outside of the daiquiri deck.
I saved a cat once.
