Tell us a fun fact about you:

  • I was one of the last people to donate hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, lived in the same house Richard Nixon lived in when he was at Duke, and have never had a Caesar salad.
  • This is my third time living in the Triangle... hopefully this time, I'm here for good!
