What is your beverage of choice?

As someone with at least 3 various beverages on my desk at the same time, this is an impossible question.

If you could be any material, what material would you be?

Charred wood. As an exterior cladding material, the wood is burned to make it more resilient.

If you could live in any other era besides right now, what would you choose?

1920’s Paris. The art and literary scene with Picasso, Hemingway, James Joyce, Fitzegerald must have been amazing.
