What’s your biggest form of self-expression?
My best form of self expression is through speaking and writing.
What do your eyes and mind gravitate towards when you first see a person?
Mostly, I check out their outfit and listen to what they say because those are expressions of their personality.
Beer or wine?
Wine, hands down.
