What inspires you?
I am inspired by the work of others. The more I read, the more I feel my own burgeoning creativity. I also feel inspiration in new experiences that I want to share with others.
What can’t you live without?
I can’t live without my contact lenses. I’m amazed that even with evolution I can still have such terrible eyesight. In days of yore, I would have been the first to walk off a cliff or not see the angry grizzly bear approaching.
What is your guilty pleasure?
My guilty pleasure is puzzle books sold next to the grocery store checkout lane. I prefer a mix of word puzzles from Dell or Variety Publishers. Whenever I need to escape the unpleasantness of the world, I pick up my puzzle book and get lost in a puzzle.
What are your hobbies?
My hobbies include visiting the national parks. I’ve been to 28 different national parks with a total of 49 separate visits – some are so great I have to go multiple times! I also enjoy reading about the parks and sharing what I’ve learned on Twitter at @natlparktrivia.
