What do you like about your job?
The diversity. Every day is different so it’s never boring. This is good for my short attention span.

I like to cook and travel. I cook various types of ethnic foods using different spices and techniques.
Where did you go on your last vacation?
I went to southwest England. The geology of that area is very interesting.
