What’s your favorite thing about living in Portland?
I love the fact that I’m never more than two hours from the ocean or year round snow. Although it’s been a while, there is nothing like being on the snow, in the sun, in the middle of July.
What’s the best restaurant within five minutes of 52?
Is there a Taco Bell around here? No? Well, my second favorite is nowhere near the 52 office but I have to share. Miyamoto Sushi off 81st and SE Stark is tiny but excellent.
Name websites that you visit every day?
I’m totally hooked on the New Yorker site, specifically the Shouts & Murmurs section. That’s my smarty-pants favorite website. My self-indulgent, voyeuristic side loves TMZ. There, I said it, it’s out there for everyone to see. That felt almost as liberating as actually saying the words, “I really like Justin Timberlake.”
What book is on your nightstand right now?
I have a stack of books in line or in the middle of being read. A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer, Pride & Prejudice & Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith and “A” is for Alibi by Sue Grafton. Weird funny zombie murder mysteries, that pretty much sums up my reading style.
