Favorite thing about the crew: Sid and I are both from the DC area, I first connected with him during a flight back to DC. Politics took hold of our entire conversation. Its pretty awesome that we now have a show together. Now we can expand our discussions beyond an airplane flight and into the televisions of Vandy students.

Favorite moment on the show: Playing pump up music before the show. While everyone is reading their script, I dance around the studio.
Random fact about yourself: Childhood is about imagination. While most children were using their imagination to play tea party and dress up, I was using it hold pretend executive board meetings and mock election. I guess thatâ€™s the political junkie in me.
