What are you passionate about?
Travel, music, and my kids.
Where have you traveled and where would you still like to go?
I have traveled all over the world. Some highlights are, India, Guinea, New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, Argentina, Ecuador, Israel, Indonesia, all over Western Europe, and Hungary, the Czech Republic in Eastern Europe. I am still hoping to visit Japan, Iceland, Croatia, Columbia, Chile, Thailand, and Nepal. I think I should add Antarctica to the list to make sure I make a stop at all 7 continents at least once!
What is the hardest thing you’ve ever done?
Camping and trekking solo to Mount Fitz Roy in Patagonia in extreme weather conditions.
Which band would you love to tour with?
Gomez, Phish, or Trombone Shorty. They all have amazing tours and different type of venues they like to play. I would be so happy to hear any of these performers play night after night and they seem like super fun people to boot!
What’s the most non-traditional job you’ve ever had?
My first job out of college was assisting the booking and management for Etta James and her touring band.
What is the one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
I lived in a hammock for a month on a remote Island called Havelock Island in the Andaman Islands. I had to fish and trade for my food. This was the year before the show Survivor premiered and I laughed when I saw the first show. I felt as if I had already won that competition in real life!
