Who is the most surprising artist in current rotation on your iTunes/Spotify?
Most surprising is probably my playlist of “feel good” music or “indie pop” music. I’m pretty obsessed with Sia’s “Elastic Heart” and Alessia Cara’s “Here.” Leon Bridges would probably not be surprising, but he’s been my favorite new artist lately. Also Amy Grant’s Home for Christmas album, when in season.

Who would play you in the Lifetime movie of your life?
Emily Van Camp. People have told me I kinda look like her, and I was a big fan of her show Everwood in high school.

If the After-Life exists, what song will be playing when you arrive?
Maybe Alexi Murdoch's “Orange Sky,” if we’re being dramatic and beautiful. If we’re having fun, then "Higher Ground" by Stevie Wonder.

 

No big deal just accidentally walking up the steps at the same time as @penguins Iceburgh last night at the game!

What brand of toothpaste do you use?
Crest. This is getting pretty personal.

What's your beverage of choice?
In the everyday genre … water or coffee (probably with that Trader Joe’s vanilla creamer). In the alcohol genre, wine … unless it’s the Fall, then it's cider.

What's your favorite TV show?
For a good cry, Parenthood. For a laugh, The Office.

Star Wars or Star Trek?
Star Wars. I took a class in college that examined Joseph Campbell’s hero’s journey/“monomyth" concept and we were required to watch all of the Star Wars movies. I enjoyed getting college credit for doing this.

Taylor Swift or Ryan Adams?
Ahh, why make me choose? I’ve got lots of respect for what Ryan did with 1989 (and more so with his original stuff), but Taylor’s 1989 is close to pop songwriting perfection.

Coffee or tea?
Coffee … or, to complicate things, a chai latte with espresso in it. To be fair, I love tea, as well.
