The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is:

Be kind. And don't let the bad days fool you.

On Sunday mornings, you can usually find me…

laying on my living room floor surrounded by friends and plenty of food.

Favorite place in the world:

On a bus driving to a unknown destination. It really doesn't matter where, as long as I am with good company.

The nerdiest thing I do in my spare time:

Read The Economist word by word.

I’m happiest when…

Swimming in the ocean, exploring new places, eating amazing food or talking politics with friends.

Favorite online destination (other than so/ambitious, obviously):

Hmm is it okay to say Netflix?

Cats or dogs?

Cats off course. I wish I was a cat sometimes.
