Your most embarrassing date moment?
It was my very first date in LA. I'm from the east coast, and I'd heard crazy stories about LA's dating scene. Unfazed, I met this guy online, and his profile said he worked in the aquatic entertainment industry. Aquatic entertainment industry. Clearly, I just subconsciously recapped the plot of Free Willy and applied it to him, but nothing could have prepared me for what actually happened. Turns out, he's a merman. After the first 20 minutes of him describing (in vibrant detail) the daily life of a "real" merman, I knew the date wasn't going anywhere. But the most awkward moment came when he asked me about my favorite foods. When I told him I loved sushi, he raised his voice, accusing me of "depleting his loved ones." Other diners turned to look, the intensity of their stares burning as my merman date kept shouting about my gross insensitivity. It was a short meal.
What career accomplishment are you most proud of?
In my typical role at Sony Pictures, I support the studio's corporate business efforts. Following last year's cyberattack, my role transformed into an entirely new one overnight. In my new post-hack role, I locate and recover specific data files in an isolated network, an area that was completely foreign to me.
