What do you do:
I worry. Quite a lot. And, I’m a designer, brainstormer and one half of the Movable Type team—the other half being my husband, Ben.

Favorite Books:
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, Metropolitan Life by Fran Lebowitz, and Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris.

Serge Gainsbourg, Dorothy Parker, The Bronte Sisters.

The old stand-by response used to be ‘humor at another person’s expense.’ But now that I know better, I’ll stick with safe answers: I’m Alan Patridge, The Kids in the Hall, Christopher Guest films

Charity worth giving to:
Best Friends Animal Sanctuary

Five words that sound good:
mezcla / bottleneck / imagineering / pamplemousse / licorice
