Favorite MYS-related memory?
Professionally speaking – probably attending CONEXPO-CON/AGG for the first time and seeing the immense majesty that IS CONEXPO. Both awe-inspiring and a little scary when it’s really windy and there are hundred-feet tall cranes blowing in the wind. Plus, I got to meet the big puffy Michelin Man. Personally speaking, probably any one of the numerous times Phil has prank called an account manager. Especially Kyle.
You’re stranded on a desert island. What three things would you most like to have with you?
Taking liberties with logic: 1 – Kindle with a limitless battery life and self-renewing book supply 2 – Bottle of wine that never goes empty 3 – Tim. Holding Carlton the cat. Or Carlton holding Tim.
Most famous person you’ve had a face-to-face encounter with?
Met Ernie Banks in a hotel bar in Cleveland who just kept telling me I was a nice girl and I needed to get married. Which was odd and surreal.
If you could interview any person – dead or alive – who is it and what would you ask
No doubt it would be my dad because I never truly had the opportunity to know him as an adult. Question I’d ask is a little harder – maybe if he had any regrets? Or if I was really his favorite child as I’ve long suspected.
What do you like best about Cincinnati?
Cincinnati is the best small town feeling bigger city in the U.S. Genuine sense of community no matter which side of town you live on. Ridiculously good restaurants. Mad Tree, Mt. Carmel and Rhinegeist breweries to name just a few of the many here. And Graeters.
If you could only pick one location to vacation each year, where is it and why?
I guess one place I never got tired of going to is Siesta Key, FL. Beautiful beaches, a walkable community, and manatees.
Favorite concert experience?
Toss-up between Springsteen in Los Angeles which was my 1st Bruce experience, Springsteen in Cincinnati where we were super close to the stage and watching Julie Baker people watch at that one was pretty entertaining or Springsteen at Wrigley Field, because come on – it’s Springsteen and Wrigley.
Would you rather have the superpower to fly or become invisible?
Got to be invisibility. If it was at-will invisibility and not just I’m in the middle of a conversation and, darn, I’m not here anymore. That would ruin the sneakiness of it.
Who should be featured on the blog next?
Oh, of course that would be Drew “I love data” Martin.
Stay tuned for future MYS updates. And if there’s someone you really want to see featured here, get a hold of me at @MapYourShow.
