Who do you live with: I have two roommates and live in northeast Minneapolis.
Where would you like to live: I would love to live in Seattle. Or San Francisco. Somewhere with less snow.
Your favorite occupation: I've been blessed to work at Twin Cities Live as a Producer. I get to meet awesome people every single day. From celebrities to those who make a difference in our community, no two days are the same.
Person you'd like to meet: Adam Levine
What do you order in a coffee shop: Cold press. Black.
3 TCL regulars who you'd like to have dinner with: Ted Farrell, Mike Frattallone and Marjorie Johnson. There would be no silence.
Favorite State Fair food: Ooh, tough question. I’m at the State Fair a lot, so I’ve had my share of fair food. The first thing I get every year is the turkey sandwich from Turkey To Go. I also love the vanilla malt from Sadie’s, which is across the street from the Miracle of Birth Center.
Favorite TCL moment: Producing a surprise wedding proposal.
One thing you can't live without: Google Calendar
Dream TCL interview/segment: Taking the whole staff and viewers on a cruise of the Caribbean!
