I hail from off-the-grid North Idaho, where I grew up sailing, skiing, and adventuring outside. I’m no stranger to multiple feet of snow and a reputation for stellar spuds. I have a year and a half old Bernese Mountain Dog named Ilya, after the goofy Russian hockey player Ilya Bryzgalov. Look up compilations of his best quotes on YouTube: “Is only game, why you have to be mad?” I have a knack for camouflaging my nail color with everyday objects. If you search #invisiblefingernails on Insta, you’ll see what I mean. They’re all me! I’ve got a nasty DIY habit and usually insist on fashioning my own coffee table, coat hook, Halloween costume, etc. from repurposed Goodwill or Craigslist finds rather than buying things brand new. I’m beyond thrilled to the join the Q Morning Show crew and to better get to know this town I already love!
