Creative inspiration
I find inspiration from my peers at work and in my personal life. I also go to as many local art shows and galleries as I can! (And Pinterest!)

Favorite cereal
I’m a pretty healthy eater, so I love Smart Start.

Top three interests outside of work
1. Being outside! I love biking at Stony Creek.

2. Volunteering with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. My favorite Make-A-Wish volunteer project is the annual bike tour, the Wish-A-Mile 300. My primary responsibility is to interview everyone involved, so I get the opportunity to meet a ton of great people and interact with our wonderful Wish Families.

3. I love the energy of being in Downtown Detroit. Going to the DIA and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra performances are two of my favorite downtown activities.

Favorite YouTube video
Anything involving cats. Who doesn’t enjoy cats doing silly things?

The best ad campaign of all time
The old Guinness ads from the 30s and 40s (My Goodness, My Guinness!). Not familiar? Check out one of them here: http://bit.ly/Ia2FiV

What was your first job?
My first job was for my dad's charter boat company. I was a deck hand/first mate.

What did it teach you?
I learned how to deal with difficult people and keep a smile on my face! Also how to tie lines, read buoys & operate a single-screw boat.

What is one thing you’d be willing to practice for an hour a day?
I'd gladly go back to practicing dance for an hour a day!

Do you cook? What is your favorite recipe?
I’ve just started learning to cook. I’ll try anything I find on Pinterest!
