Behind The Desk: Lindsay Silva
Here is the next installment in our new series called Behind the Desk, about our beloved and much appreciated Front Desk staff. These CrossFitters take care of the important duties of checking in our members, handling walk-ins, tidying up after classes, and so many other things that it would take forever to list them. They are the glue that holds this gym together.
Full name: Lindsay Kathleen Silva
Where were you born and where did you grow up: Born in Dallas. Grew up in Dallas, Oklahoma City, Phoenix and Brooklyn (I’m still growing up, right?)
First album that you loved: Nirvana’s Nevermind. I loved it with the fire of a million suns. I think I wore out my cassette tape. However. My earliest musical memory is rocking out to the Hair soundtrack on vinyl with my older cousin. I think we probably loved that album.
What are you up to when you’re not at 597 Degraw Street: Happily slaving away on my PhD in Neuroscience. Or seeing bands play. And traveling to see bands play. And forcing others to accompany me to see bands play.
“Ask me about that time I…”: Botched that job in Nigeria and ended up working as an unlicensed Private Investigator in Miami while trying to figure out who burned me.
Oh wait. That’s “Burn Notice.” I’m far less interesting but ask me anything. I’ll probably answer truthfully. And if I don’t, you’ll know because I have no poker face.
Earth is about to implode but aliens on a previously undiscovered planet named Euripides want to preserve one artifact from humans. What would you offer them? ALL THE CAT GIFS!
Favorite shade of blue: The Caribbean Sea
Favorite lift: Whatever lift I’m currently attempting. I’m an equal opportunity lift lover. Although I have to admit I kinda only love the snatch because, well… it’s called a snatch.
