What got you interested in politics?

From a young age I’ve been surrounded by a tumultuous (to say the least) political climate. So I guess reading the news and hearing people talk about corruption every day for 12 years conditioned me to enjoy the intricacies of politics.

What your favorite monument in Washington DC?

Lincoln Memorial

What is your favorite book?

Joseph Heller’s Catch-22 – name a book with this many elaborate subplots!

If you could interview one person (dead or alive) who would it be?

Kate McKinnon from SNL because she is both my celebrity crush and my hero at the same time.

What is your favorite sports team?

The Boston Celtics even though I’m not from Boston and I can’t shoot a basketball.
