If you could only listen to ONE musician/artist/band for the rest of your life, who would that be? Why?
If I could only listen to ONE band for the rest of my life it would be Earth Wind and Fire. I love the this band because they have their own sound and that’s what makes it timeless.

If you could be the mayor of Cincinnati for a day, what’s one thing that you would change?
If I could be the Mayor of Cincinnati for a day, one thing I would change would be the food access laws and regulations. I would make it beneficial for companies that revitalize urban areas to also provide the community with tools to uplift the people. Such as trade education and certifications to small business mentor ship.
