What's your name?
Where are you from?
When did you start puzzling?
From the beginning. Started seriously puzzling around 8.
What is your favorite piece count and why?
I like many for very different reasons. If I had to pick one, I would say 1000. They take time to complete but not so long that they sit on my puzzle table for a long time. Some I can get done in one sitting.
What is your favorite type of art?
I like abstract and colorful art. Really, anything that has a lot of color will most likely capture my eye. I also love puzzles with illustrations, animals, and originality.
What makes you keep puzzling and how often do you puzzle?
I puzzle just because I enjoy it. I try to do it every day. Some days this isn't possible with three young kids, but I can usually get in a little time. I also keep puzzling because the puzzle community inspires me to always show what I am working on and I enjoy the enthusiasm.
What is your go to drink/snack when you puzzle?
I normally don't eat or drink with my puzzles. I don't want to hurt my puzzles. However, sometimes I like a vanilla latte in the morning if I am puzzling. That is a winning combination.
Tell us a little bit about your other joys.
I love to make art. Art and puzzling were the first things I gravitated towards as a young child. I also am athletic. I am a speed skater and a competitive swimmer. I am a swing dancer and am skilled in Lindy Hop, East Coast, and Charleston. I enjoy being in the woods, and playing with my 3 children.
