  • I grew up wanting to be: a pro athlete or an astronaut, but then I realized that I'm already nervous about flying, so how would 'flying' into outer space work out for me?!?
  • When I need to relax, I: Do anything active, although my go-to's are taking a walk in a very aesthetically pleasing location, practicing yoga, or training at the gym.
  • My most useful skill is: ...apparently, my laugh. It helps people locate me in the middle of a crowd, it serves as a beacon, a wordless expression of agreement or confusion, and the foundation of many solid Eli impressions.
