1.) What is your favorite Eugene business?
Uncommon Scents at the Meridian! I’m also a fan of Nobody’s Baby.
2.) What is your favorite Eugene restaurant?
There are too many great restaurants here! Izakaya Meiji and Marché are great (and open) after a show. Rye has been my go-to for special occasions (in house chocolatier? Yes, please.) Lately though, a meal at home is my favorite.
3.) What is your favorite pastime outside of rehearsal and performance?
Traveling or spending time surrounded by plants.
