On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being highest), how funny do you think you are?
I think I'm about an 8. I tell all kinds of crazy stories and I don't mind doing something funny at my own expense.
Name a local restaurant would you recommend to a visitor to your town or city.
I love Teak Thai in the heart of Mount Adams. Great sushi, great Thai, great scene and people watching.
What's a lesson you were lucky enough to learn the easy way?
I've learned just about everything the hard way. I guess I learned how to swim and drive without any trouble. I picked up the strokes pretty well and swam competitively for seven years. As for driving, I aced the written and the manual the first time, and I didn't get into my first crash until I had my license for nine years.
Where would you like to be 5 years from now?
Anywhere, as long as I am happily in love and working in a career that is both challenging and enriching.
If you could see the front page of a newspaper from June 2, 2106, what would you imagine the headline might be?
Gosh, I hope there still are newspapers then.
