When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a sign language interpreter.

In my free time, you can usually find me...

Practicing my violin, playing video games, hiking, going to the beach, discovering a new brewery (mmmmm, beer!), glamping is fun too!

What is your favorite Portland Opera memory?

Attending my first rehearsal for the George and Friends concert, and feeling the excitement of coming together for the first time since the pandemic.

What's your favorite Portland coffee shop, brewery, cidery, or winery?

One of my new and more recent discoveries is Pfriem beer. I love a good Hazy IPA!

Do you have hike/park/scenic view in Oregon that inspires you?

The view of the Gorge from Vista Point is quite a site! It reminds me how lucky and grateful I am to call Oregon my home.

What's your favorite season in Portland/why?

The fall season is by far cause of the ever changing colors of the leaves.

What's your favorite bike path/greenway/route in Portland?

Though I don't live in Portland anymore (now living in Hillsboro where I grew up) I grew very fond of the spring corridor walking/bike trail. My spouse Todd and I would often ride our bikes up the trail for miles!

What is the most interesting/unusual job you've ever had?

I had a temp job one year when I was living in New York. I was a Media Assistant at the Met.
