Given a choice, what kind of a tree would you be and why?
I’d never want to be a tree, a tree doesn’t move! I shudder to think of me trapped as a tree. I’d definitely have to be something that can more, a plane, a suit, a rocket. Preferably, a red rocket.
A fact about you that surprises people, especially those who know you.
When I’m alone in my car I listen to Janis Joplin – something like Me & Bobby McGee – and I scream my lungs out singing along.
