“Tell me a fun fact about yourself!”
I always freeze and can’t think of anything good. Then later, I remember the most BOMB fun facts, like the time I got a ticket for (ahem) *drag racing* when I was 17 and had to go to remedial driving school. 🤦🏻♀️
So, the last time I had to provide some “fun facts,” I cheated and asked my bestie to do it for me. Here is what she said…
👨🎤🧷 You’re punk rock about not liking shit that everyone else likes. ⬅️ most people find this extremely annoying about me… but then they warm up. 🙂
🫒 You have a secret arsenal of Armenian recipes that you don’t break out often, but when you do it’s amazing. ⬅️;) #truestory And the reason I don’t make them very often is b/c I can’t find many ingredients in Asheville.
🎤 Karaoke Queen. ⬅️ All my life I couldn’t carry a tune, but I love to sing. Since 2020 I’ve been taking voice lessons to get better, and now I can sing my little heart out. Singing helps my anxiety.
💪 You know a terrifying amount about fitness. ⬅️ “Terrifying” is absolutely the right word. Doing a lot of processing about my time in that world.
😋 You have a podcast about condiments. ⬅️I do! Or… I did, Pardon Me. We got derailed by covid so we only did 3 episodes: ketchup, sriracha, and ranch. Sriracha was my fave. Now we feel like we need to re-record b/c all our ep’s were pre-quarantine.

Want to learn how to craft emails that inspire action and engagement WITHOUT the “tried and true” (cough: patriarchal) norms we’ve all been taught?
I’m doing it, and I can show you how to do it, too.
(But sometimes, I also like to write about the books I’m reading, or the creative process, or the entrepreneurial experience, or why I hate Steve Jobs, or how I met my BFF. I’ll send you emails like that, too.)
*Just kidding. It’s only an email list.
Books. Cats. Rants. Drawrings.
(and every couple months or so, an unexplained absence 🤷🏻)
