What is your favorite book of all time?

I will always be a huge Harry Potter fan. That was the first book/series that got me into reading.

What is your favorite place in Chicago that isn't a typical tourist destination?

As a Hyde Park resident, I really enjoy visiting Promontory Point. It is a great place to hang out by the lake that isn't overly crowded.

Would you rather have the office stocked 24/7 with Starbucks coffee or Garrett's popcorn?

Garrett's popcorn. I can make do with a normal cup of coffee if I have awesome snacks on hand.

If you could live anywhere else in the world, where would you live?

I would live in New York City. I love the big city life in Chicago, but I really miss the real pizza, bagels and cheesesteaks that surround you on the east coast.
