I'm a reporter covering the economics of aging throughout the lifespan.
What was your first job?
I worked as a salesgirl and helium balloon inflator at a card store when I was 15.
In your next life, what would your career be?
A synchronized swimmer … an oral historian … or in all honesty, probably a journalist.
What is something that everyone should own, no matter how much it costs?
A good pair of shoes.
What’s the favorite item in your workspace and why?
I love textiles, fabrics and woven goods and always try to pick some up whenever I travel. I have a handful in and around my studio. They brighten up the space. Also, when I can no longer see them, I know it’s time to purge the piles of paper that just seem to accumulate.
