4. My family has owned a music store for more than 50 years called the Folk Music Center.

5. The first record I ever bought was Jimi Hendrix's Smash Hits.

6. I am from Claremont, California.

7. I unapologetically use words such as awesome, gnarly, richter and totally on a daily basis.

8. I will not go on to another book until I finish the book I'm reading, no matter how much I hate the book I'm reading.

10. I love Mexican food.

11. My mom plays and sings way better than I do. more»
