Your adventure starts....where? My first stop would have to be India. I've always been overwhelmingly fascinated by the culture there, and I could eat Indian food for the rest of my life.

A great moment for you: Every time I sing on a stage, it's a great moment. I'm surrounded by lovely people letting me show them my art. Walking across the stage at my college graduation was pretty great, as well.

Your passions outside of work: I love cooking, playing and listening to music, and animals. I spend most of my free time with my two crazy dogs or making a mess in the kitchen.

A quote that inspires you: "I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, 'If this isn't nice, I don't know what is." - Kurt Vonnegut

Why I live in Utah: I've tried to live elsewhere, but these mountains kept tugging me back home. Plus, Utah is full of some of the sweetest people on the planet.

Best place I've lived: I've only ever lived in Utah and Washington, but both places were the best for very different reasons. I'll miss the rainy, quiet forests of Washington every day, but Utah is my home.

First job: I was a barista and a baker's assistant at a specialty cake shop at sixteen. I learned the beauty of being appreciated at your job, and how wonderful it feels to help others be great at what they do.
