Name: Marina Allain
Title: Brand Designer
What is the coolest thing you’re working on right now? A hip-hop dance routine!
If you could visit anywhere in the world right now, where would you go? I would go to Ireland to see where my family is from and take in all the beautiful scenery.
What is the best concert you’ve ever attended? Backstreet Boys, hands down.
Do you have any hidden talents? I am a puzzle queen.
Who would you most like to switch places with for a day (this can be a celebrity, family member, animal, coworker, anybody you wish)? I would absolutely switch places with my boxer, Daisy. She sleeps most of the day and gets excited about the littlest things.
What is your go-to karaoke song? I have only done karaoke once in my life, and it happened to be a backstreet boys song in a group of elderly people with my grandma, Mimi!
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would you choose? Popcorn, no doubt.
What is your all-time favorite movie? If you ask my parents what movie I watched over and over again as a child, they would not hesitate to say Jurassic Park.
How do you typically spend your free time? Enjoying the San Diego weather with my awesome husband.
