If I won a million: I’d put it in the bank. There’s nothing I really want right now.

My favorite vacation: For three months after high school I traveled through southern Mexico, Belize and Guatemala. I read, traveled and talked to people.

Why I or my family came to Nevada County: My parents came to California from the East Coast to explore a new place and get away from their families. They came to Nevada County for the small-town atmosphere. There were a lot of people here that had the same ideals and views on social events, politics and child care.
