What is one of your proudest accomplishments?
Being invited to GTA’s Digital Center of Excellence (DCoE). I love creating and attending events that bring thought leaders together.  This project is dedicated to exploring some of the best innovations in digital technology for state agencies, and I am thrilled to take this opportunity to explore new ways to communicate and engage with constituents around the State of Georgia.

Favorite Song
This is a hard one. Right now it might be “Legacy” by Jay-Z. I play it on repeat.

If you had your own late-night talk show who would be your 1st guest & why?
Ted Turner, the creator of the TV station and news agency CNN.  I would love to talk to him about an old canceled show he created called “Good News.” It’s amazing to know a great positive topic received low ratings while bad news became much more popular.

If you had 25 hours in a day, how would you use your extra time?
I would rotate my time between dancing, playing really fun and silly games with friends, studying world history before 1492, learning to sew and play a few musical instruments, practicing yoga, kickboxing and martial arts for ladies, building furniture and electronics, and creating a really cool exotic garden outside my kitchen.  I plan to do all that with 24 hours anyway, so wish me luck.
