A Knife – most handy thing to have on an island
Sunscreen – so I don’t get melanoma after I’m rescued

What is your favorite all-time book and why?
Atlas Shrugged – most thought provoking book I’ve ever read–also a very good love story.
Do you consider yourself a romantic and why?
Yes, I grew up watching 80’s movies. i want the Jake character from the end of 16 Candles or Lloyd Dobler from Say Anything — I want the guy to pursue me and then make an enormous romantic gesture like holding a boom box over his head.
Do you have any family holiday or special event traditions that you plan to uphold?
Every Christmas Eve we exchange the ugliest pajamas we can find and play a family board game together.
