I started working in social because: I used to work in book publishing, and I was fascinated by the idea of working in a medium so ephemeral.
When I was young, I wanted to be: I was definitely really into writing and thought about being an author, but I also wanted to be a firefighter and a dancer and an EMT.
My favorite word is: I can’t tell you that because it’s part of most of my passwords. BUT my second favorite word is “quotidian”.
My spirit animal is: a dog, of course.
The last book I read was: Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng.
When my flight is delayed, I: wander around the terminal. I don’t like feeling too dormant.
I’m insanely addicted to: Spearmint Orbit gum and Hershey’s dark chocolate kisses.
Creativity is: good for the soul.
I ended up at Crown because: I sent an unsolicited haiku to the team that obviously demonstrated my mad writing skillz.
