A notable moment on Twitter?

Joe Zee (Creative Director at ELLE Magazine) retweeted me once!

Your best Tweet:

“Smart is sexy. Don’t dumb yourself down #themoreyouknow”

But it could also be one of my many transit related tweets.

What did you want to be growing up?

I really wanted to be an actress, but then that evolved into a drama teacher, then a softball player, and finally a softball coach.

If you could have dinner with 1 person (live or dead) who would it be?

Derek Jeter. I love his positive attitude and that he’s such a great role model. He’s probably the most self-aware professional athlete there is. I’d want to talk shop with him, review tape and pick apart at-bats, talk about different types of drills, and then see if he wanted to hit the cages.

Your claim to fame:

My sarcasm and sense of humour – online and in real life. I love telling a good story.

Also, I played softball for Team Canada, so I’ve had some people tell me that they’ve seen me play, which is kind of strange.

Do you know of a hidden gem in our city?

There’s a great hole-in-the-wall Mexican place on Denman that makes the best traditional margaritas. It’s totally a hidden gem since I don’t even remember the name of it!

If you were a superhero, who would you be and why?

Sailor Jupiter. She’s one tough cookie.

If you were a vegetable, what would you be and why?

Broccoli because it’s adaptable – you can eat it so many ways: raw, steamed, boiled, baked, in soup, sitr-fried.

Recommend a fellow Twitterer that deserves some recognition?

@thevagablond. Fellow Vancouverite I met via Twitter (and then in real life) who’s traveling the world. I live vicariously through her tweets.

Describe yourself in 3 words:

Passionate. Energetic. Determined.
