What do you do at Egg Press...Customer service
Favorite Egg Press card…I love that proceeds from our three Best Couple cards will be donated to marriage equality agencies. So Happy Smiles is pretty dang cute, though.
What did you want to be when you were a kid? When I was really little, I thought the best gig in town had to be driving the ice cream truck. Runner up? Dentist.
Favorite color: Blue
Signature dish: Roasted chicken with sweet potatoes, onions and carrots.
Favorite artist/s: Portlander Suzanne Elizabeth makes gorgeous paintings. She elevates ordinary scenes into sublime ones. I've also always loved paintings by Mary Cassatt. I think they're peaceful. There is an etching by Degas of Cassatt looking at Etruscan art and I like to think about that drawing. Art by an artist of an artist contemplating art.
Favorite thing about Portland is: It is the biggest small town. Everybody knows everybody.
Last good book you read: Last good book? As opposed to favorite? I recently read Ties That Bind: Stories of Love and Gratitude From the First Ten Years of Story Corps by David Isay. People have a lot to say when given the right forum.
Few people know that you…: I came this close >< to being a game show contestant.
What’s your favorite place on earth?: I haven't seen enough of the earth to know that. But I do love redwood forests.
Favorite thing to listen to when you’re working:TED talks.
Favorite names: Being a mom means that I've been able to affix my favorite names to real people. Samuel and Nina are not getting any more siblings, but I think Zinnia would be lovely for their imaginary sister. Maybe one day I will name pets Cypress and Hemlock after the residence halls of my alma mater where I lived with my sweetheart.
