What are you binge-watching right now? I just started watching Broadchurch.  I rarely watch TV so this will take months, not sure if that’s binge-watching but it’s as close as I can get.

Favorite snack?Almonds/cashews I usually always have a bag of them with me but they have to be raw and unsalted.

5 songs on your current playlist? Good Life by Kanye West, Midnight Train to Georgia by Gladys Knight and the Pips, Lovesong by The Cure, Room Without a View by The Smithereens, Terra Nova Cain by The Church. My music is all over the place and I’m not afraid to mix any genre together on my playlist.

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? A doctor, I loved then and still love anything science/medical.  In college I decided that being in the lab was the most enjoyable place for me and switched to a chemistry degree.

First thing you do when you wake up? Stretch and try to figure out why today’s random song is playing in my head.   I usually wake up to music playing in my head (and it’s not my alarm) and it’s always a random song that I would most likely not listen to on a regular basis. The latest song was Casey Jone by The Grateful Dead. I really don’t even listen to The Grateful Dead very often, if ever. Maybe it’s a form of some psychosis but at least it’s pleasant.

Favorite type of food or meal? Sushi or anything seafood.

Rapid Fire:

Left Handed or Right Handed? RIGHT

Tidy or Messy? TIDY

Extrovert or Introvert? INTROVERT

Coffee or Tea? COFFEE

Mac or PC? MAC

Apple or Android Phone? APPLE

Dogs or Cats? BOTH

Beach or Mountains? BEACH

Meat or Fish or Vege? FISH

Summer or Winter? SUMMER

Favorite Pilates apparatus or Pilates exercise?  My favorite apparatus is the combo chair. I love the added balance challenge that can be achieved with the chair.  It forces you to stabilize before every movement and doesn’t allow the abs to take a break.
