What’s your favorite part of working at CaptionMax?
My favorite part of working at CaptionMax is definitely the people, hands down. We have some spectacular employees at this company. And also the really unexpected shows I would’ve never ever watched on my own, which taught me things I never even considered, like how to go Crossbow Hunting Fishing (you shoot fish with arrows while sitting in a rowboat, very intense).
What job did you want when you were 10 years old?
I wanted to be a book editor and read all day, as well as a ballerina, and a wedding dress model (no other collections – just straight wedding dress ballgowns only).
What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?
Books and cats. I can’t narrow down any of these answers to just one thing, clearly. Sorry!
Do you have any hidden talents?
Not really. I danced ballet and ballroom for a number of years, and played the violin, but those are not necessarily hidden talents so much as hobbies. And I’m super rusty at the violin by now.
What is your biggest hobby outside of work?
Reading while a cat naps in my hair.
If you could have dinner with any person, living or dead, who would it be?
Okay, if I have the power to dine with the dead, then it follows that I ALSO have the power to throw a full dinner party. And the key to a good invitation list is including the right mix of personalities for engaging conversation, so I’d invite Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Joss Whedon, our own Jess Matelski who would murder me if I didn’t include her when Joss Whedon was over, J.K. Rowling, Shakespeare, Taylor Swift, Captain America, Colin Firth, Jane Austen, and because the rules of hosting an excellent Regency dinner party requires equal numbers of men and women, I’d add Capability Brown, just to mix it up a little. I’d title it the “Who Tells Your Story” Party.
What is your favorite TV show/movie?
My current favorite TV show is “Arrow,” mostly because I’m in love with Oliver and Felicity. But I also love “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “iZombie,” and “Lucifer.” My all-time hands-down favorite is “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” And my favorite movie is the 2005 “Pride & Prejudice” starring Keira Knightley, just because it’s so incredibly pretty.
