Where are you originally from?
I was born and raised here in Indianapolis.
Where are your favorite Indy spots?
For restaurants, I can’t name just one so here are a few: B’s Po Boy, La Mulita, and Tinker Street. And my favorite place is undoubtedly the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on the morning of the Indianapolis 500. I’m a big race fan and I love all the traditions that come with race day.
How do you typically travel around the city?
I typically travel around the city by car.
If you could have coffee with anyone, living or not, who would it be and why?
Honestly, I would probably want to have coffee with my great-grandma, Tommie Walker. She passed shortly after I was born, but was a strong and determined woman. I think it would be interesting to be able to chat with her.
Thinking forward to the next 5 years in Indy, what are you most excited about for the future?
I’m excited to watch Indy continue to grow and develop, and to ultimately be a part of that growth. Indianapolis is a great place to live and work! In the next 5 years, I think we’re going to see more people speaking up and taking pride in what this city has to offer. And for me personally, that’s really exciting.
If you won the lottery, what would you do with your winnings?
If I won the lottery, I would set up a foundation to give the majority of it away, put a good amount towards traveling the world, and save the rest.
Would you rather visit the world 100 years in the past or 100 in the future and why?
I would rather visit the world 100 years in the past because I like the idea of experiencing how my ancestors from not that long ago lived, where they grew up, and what Indianapolis was like at the time.
What is your favorite family tradition?
My favorite family tradition would have to be grilling out and watching fireworks over Lake Wawasee in Northern Indiana on July 4th weekend.
