Twenty Questions

Be yourself, babe

I didn’t want to write some long-winded article about myself (I’ve already done that in every other section of this website) so I figured this would be the easiest way to get to know the parts of me that I don’t include in my other pages. Legggo.

Where are you from originally?

San Diego, California!

What is your major?

I’m currently pursuing my bachelors degree in English Literature.

Who has been the biggest influence on your life?

Maybe this is a lame answer, but definitely my parents. I am equal parts my mom, and equal parts my dad. My dad taught me to be brainy, analytical, curious and kind. My mom taught me how to be thoughtful, empathetic, creative and fun.

What’s your favorite place in the entire world?

Eek. That’s impossible to answer. It’s a very, very close tie between Joshua Tree, California and Paris, France. Odd couple, I know.

What’s your favorite movie of all time?

Another impossible question. But three that consistently rank within my top five films are the 2005 version of Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightly and Matthew McFayden, Splash with Tom Hanks and Darryl Hannah, and Drive with Ryan Gosling.

What’s your favorite way to spend a weekend?

Wake up around 8 or 9am on Saturday, have coffee and a breakfast burrito while I catch up on the news. Around 12pm, head to a local brewery for some beers and outdoor games, then head to a concert in downtown San Diego that evening. Sundays are reserved for doing absolutely positively nothing interspersed with either cooking or gardening.

Are you more of a cat or a dog person?

So I’ve got a tattoo of a cat, and cats have always held a very dear piece of my heart. But in 2017, a little flea-covered puppy quite literally fell into my lap and soon blossomed into my sweet baby Josephine (Jo), my Belgian-Malinois x Toy Fox Terrier 35lbs of pure energy child in every sense of the way apart from biological.

What is your absolute favorite food?


Do you have any siblings?

I’m the only child of my parent’s marriage, but I have two older half sisters from my dad’s first marriage and a step-sister and step-brother from my dad’s current marriage.

What combination of toppings makes your perfect pizza?

Mushrooms, Goat cheese and sausage. Maybe some pesto.

What’s your favorite holiday?


What is your absolute dream job?

I’d be a screenwriter/film actress.

How would your best friends describe you?


What do you like most about where you live?

There’s literally no better place to live than San Diego. You can be at the beach in 30 minutes or in the snow-covered mountains in 30 minutes. Take your pick.

What is one skill you wish you could be better at?

Tying balloons.

In one word, how would you describe yourself?


If your life was a movie, who would play you?

Kristen Stewart, because she’s got the resting-bitch-face act down perfectly.

If you could travel back and live in any period of time, when would it be?

Regency era England but with the fashions of 1700’s France.

Do you prefer salty snacks, or dessert?

Salty Desserts.

What’s the most spontaneous thing you’ve ever done?

Gotten a stupid tattoo that I’ve since grown to love. We all have to have at least one stupid tattoo.
