Most Common Quarantine activity: 

Eating cheeseburgers 3x a week and then telling people that I'm on a diet. Also, recording episodes of the FratChat Podcast! I would have most definitely gone insane without it. 

Favorite quarantine show/movies: 

The Imposters! It's funny, it's cool, it has action and great characters. What a ride! I also introduced my girlfriend to the entire Rocky collection (along with Creed's 1 and 2) and the entire Avengers movie saga. I can see it in her eyes that she now loves Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth more than me. It was totally worth it, though. 

Fav Ig Accounts: 

I love catching up on segments of the @dailyshow on their instagram page. I'm also a total dork and love the @hippoandpiggi strip, for their cheesy/adorable content. On the clothing/design side, I love the content and clothes over at @themoonlifeclothing and their owner/lead designer @natemoonlife. And lastly, and I'm definitely biased with this one, I totally love @fratchatpodcast! Whoever comes up with the content for that page must truly be geniuses. Super handsome too... 

Fav quarantine meal/drink: 

A ginormous cheeseburger (toppings depend, but usually cheese, bacon, mushrooms, grilled onions, etc.)  with fries (and/or onion rings) and a Cherry Coke. 

Most questionable thing you’ve seen or heard recently: 

Bruce Castor's opening speech during the Trump impeachment trial. WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?! Was he high during that?! Did he pre-game the event?! I have so many questions!

First thing you do when isolation is over... 

Professionally: Perform in a comedy club again!! Personally: Go to dinner indoors without having a panic attack! YAYYYY!
