What's your favorite thing to do in DC?

Concerts at the 9:30 Club. It’s the first real venue where I went to a show as a teen and still my favorite.

What's your hidden talent?

Remembering the names of “hey, it’s that guy” character actors on TV.

What punctuation mark would you be, and why?

The em dash, hailed by as “perhaps the most versatile punctuation mark.”

Leisurely brunch with friends at our favorite hidden gem place that’s oddly never crowded - I might share the secret if you ask!
