Favorite thing about HW: The word “joyful” in our Mission Statement. I think it gives all of us permission to remember to love what we do in the classroom, darkroom, dance studio, main stage, athletic field and pool, and the forgotten spaces like Administrative offices, cafeteria and bookstore.
Favorite Book: Bel Canto, by Ann Patchett
Favorite place in Los Angeles: Griffith Observatory, the beaches, DTLA (because art, restaurants, historic culture), driving up any canyon or mountain.
Secret Dream Job: Travel Writer who writes and produces movies on the side.
I’ve never had a chance to, but I’ve always wanted to… Have a Hollywood-like shopping spree on Rodeo, afternoon tea, the day capped off at the spa and later dinner at an LA hotspot.
