1. What are three words that best describe you?

Happy, Adventurous, and Curious.

2. Tell us why you’re awesome in two sentences or less?

I’ve traveled through 32 countries without ever losing my luggage. I’m a great friend and I can make conversation with just about anyone, ever.

3. What are your three biggest indulgences?

Cheese, books, and travel.

4. What’s currently your favorite…

Restaurant: Trieu Chau – it’s a dive-y Vietnamese place in my neighborhood with the best cold noodle salad.

Shopping Destination: Target. Seriously. I’m not a big shopper. At all.

Hangout: Nina’s – The coffee shop around the corner from my house. It was a brothel in the 20’s!

5. What is your biggest pet peeve?

People who don’t understand how to make conversation.

6. If you could have dinner with anyone (living or not) who would it be?

Anne Lamott. She’s one of my favorite writers – so warm, funny and insightful!

7. What does it mean to you to have a strong, engaging brand and how has having one helped you?

To me, it means that you can put out a variety of products (in my case, as varied as ebooks, an app, a cat calendar) and they still make sense within the umbrella for your brand. An engaged brand means that people feel like they know you and relate to you – and that they want to be your friend.

8. What is your #1 tip for fellow women entrepreneurs?

Do what you say you’re going to do. Deliver on time and under budget.
