Favorite Musician: This is tough. I love all kinds of music. Right now, I’m listening to Fleet Foxes, Calvin Harris, Matthew Koma and Iron & Wine.

Favorite Song: “Rhapsody In Blue” by George Gershwin. It’s a long piece but it’s so good.

One thing my co-workers don’t know about me is…I enjoy karaoke. It’s something I like to do every now and then. I promise I won’t sing in the newsroom, though.
