What has been the best meal of your life?
One summer while living in Austria, I went on a weekend trip to Croatia with some friends. We stayed on the Dalmatian coast in the small city of Rijeka. There was a seafood restaurant that we found that only served what they caught that morning in the Adriatic. All four of us ordered something different and we passed around our plates so we could all try everything. I particularly enjoyed the squid ink pasta with scallops and the shrimp gnocchi.

What is your favorite show, movie, or podcast?
I have watched the entire series of 30 Rock at least three times.
