Q. What book is on your nightstand?

Q. What is the yummiest thing in your fridge right now?

A. Veggie pate, mmm

A. Purple Bottle - Animal Collective, it makes me want to WAHOO

Q. Tell us a joke:

A. I want to tattoo bouquet of flowers onto my chest so when I'm elderly I have hanging baskets.

Q. What made you want to join the Integrate Arts Festival Planning Committee?
A.
I decided to take a more involved role in planning the festival this year because I was so impressed by the festival in 2013. The opening party was an incredibly fun time and the sense of excitement surrounding the gallery spaces was great to see.

Q. What book is on your nightstand?
A.
Fragile Things by Neil Gaiman. Also school-related books but you don't want to hear about those.

Q. What's your favourite spot in Victoria?
A.
Clover Point. I like making friends with the otters.

Q. Coffee or Tea?
A.
Tea. Bengal Spice herbal tea if we're getting specific.

Q. Where are you from?
A.
Maple Ridge. There's some nice mountains there. Not much else.

Q. What inspires you?
A.
People who know who they are.

Q. What made you want to join the Integrate Arts Festival Planning Committee?
A. I <3 art in a big way. I was looking for an opportunity to get more involved in Victoria's art community, and I'm also studying cultural planning - this seemed like a perfect fit for me.

Q. What makes you laugh? 
A. Most things. I love to laugh.

Q. What book is on your nightstand?
A. A whole bunch of things from art mags to Malcolm Gladwell. I've always got a few books on the go, but don't make enough time to read.

Q. If you could integrate any two things, what would they be?
A. Perfectly ripe avocados and sleeping in - these are two things that I believe should always, *always* go together.

Q. What is your favourite spot in Victoria?
A. Legacy Art Gallery - I married my hubby there last September.

Q. What was the last text message your received?

A. "Haha, morning :-) Thanks again for a wonderful party"
