What's your sign?

How long have you been with AmeriSpan?
Almost 1 year!

What are your current favorites?

Books: Any book written by Jody Picoult, the Bangkok 8 series, Memory Keeper's Daughter, Kafka on the Shore, Running with Scissors and Dry, and Chuck Klosterman's books.

Classic favorites include The Outsiders, Pretty in Pink, 16 Candles, Mighty Ducks 2 & 3, Empire Records, and Newsies.
Music: I don't really have a favorite; I am pretty open to listening to anything. I have even begun to appreciate country. And of course, I am reviving my childhood love for New Kids on the Block

What do you do in your spare time?

TV, read, travel, hang out with friends, and shop!

What is your favorite place in the world and why?

Pai, Thailand. It's a small village in the northwestern region of Thailand that is just starting to get attention from tourists. It's a great place to start outdoor adventures. I love it because of the small guesthouse I stay at. It's down a quite dirt road and all of the rooms are private bungalows with nothing inside but a mattress, a mosquito net, and a light bulb. Each comes with a hammock on the front porch. If you are lucky, you can get one right on the river. It is the best place to relax after long travels or just to get away from the big cities.

What is your favorite food?

It's a tie between my grandmother's baked ziti and som tum (papaya salad) and fried chicken from Ms. Ming in Bangkok.

What is your favorite drink?

Banana fruit shakes
What is your favorite time of year?
Fall. I love when the leaves begin to change and there is that slight chill in the air. Plus, I have my birthday to look forward to.
