Let's get social.

If you could have any one superpower, what would you choose?

Invulnerability. How awesome would it be to be able to just ‘go go go’ and ‘do do do’ without worrying about pesky things like colds, or lack of sleep. Whoa.

Who’s your dream client and what would you be doing for them?

Ohh, I’m going to cheat...I’d want to work for either TED or The Moth. Both are dedicated to people sharing their ideas and personal stories with the world, and how amazing would it be to be a part of that? I’d want to be a content manager - the person who takes the seed of an idea for a story and helps grow both the story and the person telling the story from raw idea into a producible final product.

What are the top three places you want to travel to?

Santiago, Chile, Barcelona, Spain, and London, GB!

Unleash your inner nerd! What do you geek out to?

Okay, this is going to sound so dorky, but writing. I am SUCH a writing nerd. Not even kidding. Like, if anyone ever wanted to talk about three-act-structure, about series arcs, about character development, I’m THERE. Also, Harry Potter. *grin*
