Jennifer Gaida Answers Five Questions with SCREEN
This week, The Colonie colorist Jennifer Gaida answers Five Questions with SCREEN. Gaida joined The Colonie’s staff at the beginning of the year following a stint with Energy BBDO’s Flare…
SCREEN: What actor would play you in the movie of your life? Why?
JENNIFER: Christian Bale. I don’t know who else has the versatility or facial resemblance.
SCREEN: Worst decision you made in college?
JENNIFER: Not taking more risks. I was way more timid back then. Now I constantly do things that scare me and it yields great results. I am more outgoing and have gotten a lot of opportunities in modeling and even acting, both of which seemed inconceivable prior to last year.
SCREEN: What’s your favorite restaurant on the planet?
JENNIFER: On the planet, “Fresh Side” from Amherst, MA – my college town. Partly because of nostalgia, partly because they are objectively wonderful and I can’t find anything similar elsewhere. I would order tea rolls with tons of peanut sauce. As for Chicago, I’m still exploring so that’s TBD.
SCREEN: If you could appoint ANYONE to be President of the United States, who would it be?
JENNIFER: A golden retriever because this question is far too much pressure and those dogs literally smile. Also, a significant step up from our current president.
SCREEN: If you were given a one-minute ad slot during the Super Bowl, what would you fill it with?
JENNIFER: An epically cinematic fashion/beauty/fragrance ad that I got to color (and potentially also edit) because that is one of my favorite genres of work.
SCREEN: Is there a reality TV show that you’re just a little embarrassed to admit you watch on the regular?
JENNIFER: Honestly, no I don’t watch any. But in a similar vein, I am embarrassed-ish to admit that I pretty regularly read up on zodiac sign compatibility. I’m such a Scorpio.
SCREEN: What’s the best birthday present you ever received?
JENNIFER: I grew up never celebrating birthdays or any holidays because of my parents’ religious beliefs. 0/10, do not recommend. I’m still waiting on the best birthday, but I have loved getting bday lunch outings and such with coworkers and friends. It’s so much fun to aspire to celebrate now that I am an adult and can do what I want!
