Noah’s Rapid Fire Q&A

1. What is the first thing you want to do when you move to the UK?

I want to take a run on The River Thames and also start my search for my favorite local Pub, although not necessarily in that order.

2. Are you a dog or a cat person?

Both. I have two cats, and a sweet and rambunctious two-year-old Golden Retriever, who is a handful, to say the least.

3. Do you prefer beaches or mountains?


4. Where’s your favorite place in the world?

Ribera Beach, Carmel, California.

5. What is your favorite family tradition?

Every year on Christmas Eve, we have homemade Mexican food and watch National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Oh, and I love my birthday celebration, which always lasts for weeks.

6. What’s the last book you read?

The last book I read was Calypso by David Sedaris. I have also spent a lot of time on airplanes recently, and Us Weekly has been a staple. So, I can tell you who wore it best, if you’re interested.

7. Is there anything else you want people to know?

I can’t wait to get started at with the new vision, immerse myself in the local communities in Bangladesh, and get to know that community.
