How long have you lived in Colorado?
Let’s just say long enough to classify me as a native! I was born in the south but once I developed a southern accent my parents immediately moved me to Colorado (age 4).
What is currently in your refrigerator?
Kimchi, iced coffee, homemade enchiladas, fresh fire roasted chilies, beet salad and my famous pumpkin chocolate chip cookies that I have to hide from myself in the far reaches behind the unloved jar of dill pickles.
What is your favorite neighborhood and why?
I’m loving Berkeley, it has so much to offer. While I initially missed my prior ‘hood (LoHi), Berkeley has really established itself as a destination location. There’s so much happening! Read my look into the Berkeley neighborhood here: Why Kentwood Loves Berkeley
Song that best describes your work ethic.
Daft Punk’s ‘Harder Better Faster Stronger’. “Work it harder, make it better, makes us stronger, more than ever.” Yes!
A few of my favorite things:
One of my favorite restaurants just reopened after moving and being closed for nearly a year: Chili Verde; authentic Pueblan-Mexican cuisine unlike any other Mexican restaurant I have ever frequented. You really must try it.
While many vote Wash Park as their favorite, Rocky Mountain Lake Park in NW Denver captures my attention. It’s never too crowded and yields a striking mountain view as the backdrop to the lake. It gets bonus points this time of year with its jaw-dropping fall foliage.
