Infrequently Asked Questions
What did you want to be when you were a kid?
When I was a child, I was in a stage production at the South African State Theatre where I played a doctor. The songs I sang included all kinds of technical medical and anatomical terms. The show had such an impact on me that I was convinced that when I grew up I was destined to be a doctor of medicine.
Any hidden talents?
I sing Tenor in a Bulgarian Folk and Orthodox Choir.
What sports do you do?
I enjoy spinning (indoor cycling) twice a week and doing Bikram Yoga. It’s a good balance of both fierce activity and calm. I love during the winter because of the sensation it creates when walking outside into the cold after being warm from the work out. It’s like a million little prickles.
What is your favorite meal to cook?
I really enjoy making Moussaka. I enjoy cooking overall, but the process of making Moussaka is soothing because of the order of the steps this all-in-one dish needs to go through in order to come out of the oven gooey and delicious.
What is your favorite social post?
I captured this picture while I was in Hong Kong. The dancer was set up for a photo shoot and saw this opportunity to capture this moment from a different angle than where the photograph was positioned. The contract of the peace and in her expression against the great bustling city is simply beautiful.
