If you could design your perfect Cleveland evening, what would you do? Cleveland is a great city with great people. So, the perfect evening would be going to a comedy show with some of my best friends and laughing the night away!

East Side or West Side and why? Which side has the least snowfall? Seriously, why choose? They are both full of wonderful things to experience and see.

If Cleveland proposed to you, would you accept the engagement and where would you want the proposal? I think Cleveland did propose! I never anticipated living in Cleveland and I have been here for over 10 years. If there is a formal proposal, Cleveland can do it at Wade Oval.

What is your favorite Cleveland hidden gem? Cleveland has great compassion and excellent philanthropic pursuits like Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cleveland, that mentors youth, or Towards Employment, which is helping people reenter the workforce. There are really good organizations and companies reaching into the community to make Cleveland better and we need to share that with the world. Again, it all goes back to Cleveland’s great people.

If you played for the Indians, what would be your walkup song? Whitney Houston is my favorite artist so I would have to walk up to “I Will Always Love You” right before I hit a home run!
