If you could design your perfect Cleveland evening, what would you do? I love summer nights, grilling out with friends or family at one of the lakefront parks. Good food and a Lake Erie sunset is a perfect evening!

East Side or West Side and why? West Side. I grew up on the West Side and honestly, the East Side is like another world to me. I feel that the West Side is very walkable and bike-able and there is so much constantly going on. And it’s where all my friends are, so that definitely helps.

If you could attend one of the following, which one would you choose: 50-yard-line seats at the Browns game with Bernie Kosar, dinner with your favorite Cleveland chef at his or her restaurant (and which chef and restaurant), or tickets and a backstage pass to see Machine Gun Kelly at his next Cleveland concert? Definitely dinner with a Cleveland chef. I’m going to have to go with Chef Symon at Lola. However, I follow Chef Sawyer from Greenhouse on social media and he seems like a very cool guy, along with the fact that he has a great restaurant, so he’s a close second.

What is your favorite Cleveland hidden gem? It's not exactly hidden, but I think people often overlook the natural beauty that this area has to offer. We have the lakefront, the Metroparks, Cuyahoga Valley National Park, and so many other great parks, all within 20 minutes of the city. There is so much to do outside all year-round - hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, fishing, sailing... the list goes on!

If you played for the Indians, what would be your walkup song? There’s a song called “Tranquila” by Colombian artist, J. Balvin. It’s the kind of song that you just can’t help but dance to.
