25 Things About Me

  1. I hate olives. I just do.
  2. A hockey stick knocked out my first tooth when I was 6.
  3. Weird things I like include pets with human names, miniature things, abandoned shopping malls, and marshmallows.
  4. I was a dancer at Disneyworld and Disneyland Paris when I was in high school.
  5. I can’t curl my tongue. It’s a genetic thing.
  6. I also can’t whistle. Not interested in learning either!
  7. My favorite holiday is Halloween. One year I dressed as a squid.
  8. I am classically trained in photography. I shot and developed my own film in high school and further studied it in college at the University of Iowa.
  9. I am terrible at softball.
  10. One time I received a message from a fortune cookie that said ‘Go ahead with confidence.’ It was the nudge I needed to completely change my goals. I still have the fortune!
  11. Riding a bicycle is one of life’s greatest joys. But please wear a helmet. I got hit by a cab in Chicago while riding my bike. I was totally fine thanks to the helmet.
  12. My favorite movie is Quiz Show. So many layers of goodies, So many ponder-this-forever moments.
  13. I was a newspaper columnist for six years until the pandemic torpedoed local news (RIP).
  14. My two favorite places to visit are Trader Joe’s and the public library.
  15. I have a deep fondness for dogs. Let me take your dog for a walk. Let me pet your dog’s head. Let me ask your dog about life.

  17. My ideal drinks are water, coffee, kombucha, or tea.
  18. I am committed to inclusion and being involved with organizations that empower the LGBTQ+ community.
  19. I am a proud volunteer with Moms Demand Action.

  21. I have written for websites, blogs, Apps, radio, and magazines. I screamed when I got into InStyle Magazine.
  22. Traveling is my greatest indulgence. I would love to visit Greece, Portugal, Vermont, Antelope Canyon (AZ), Germany, Japan, Santa Fe (NM), and Bali.
  23. I am a stickler for seatbelts and speed limits.
  24. I would love to take guitar lessons but I keep putting it off. Why do I keep doing this?!
  25. I can do a back flip off a diving board. It’s my one party trick.
