Contributor Q&A

What currently fills your days and can you tell us a little bit about your journey to get there?
Weekdays start with a trusty assistant (my one year old daughter) taking our four year old son to preschool. We have a plot in our community garden at Litltle Nancy Creek Park, which provides a great excuse to be outside, water, weed the beds and hit the slides.

Several years ago, at the urging of friends and family, I started Ferguson Color Fields, as a creative outlet. I also enjoy creating flower arrangements after learning the craft while volunteering time on the flower guild at our church. To stay active I enjoy tennis and recently discovered the fun of simulator golf at Intown Golf Club.

Who or where do you look for inspiration?
Before kids my husband and I spent a lot of our twenties and early thirties traveling. I like to think I constantly seek new experiences and conversations with creative people. I find my mind opens up when I hear other people's journeys, while getting to ask questions along the way.

Where will you be on your next day off?
I'd start with a breakfast burrito at Savi, followed by a barre class or riding bikes along the river. A great ending to the day, after finding something off the beaten path for dinner, usually involves painting and enjoying a glass of wine.

What is Atlanta’s food scene missing?
More live music.

What elements do you look for in a great dining experience?
Service from an engaging attendant. Ive found this, as much as anything, can really elevate the dining experience.

Last meal ever?
Philly Connection with a fountain Birch beer.
