From: Harrisonburg, Virginia
How did you end up in Truckee and what do you love most about our community? I moved here to attend school (Sierra College). I love the small-town feel and how everyone knows each other.
Why do you love coffee? I love Coffeebar, but I actually do not drink coffee. I love the way our coffee beans smell though!
What do you like most about your job at Coffeebar? Being an “experience enhancer” at Coffeebar enables me to meet everyone in the community and brighten their day through our delicious offerings.
From your perspective what makes Coffeebar special? The staff, everyone is super friendly and unique, we all bring something different to the table. Also, it has the best vibe out of any local shop around.
When I’m not at Coffeebar you can find me…Shredding Squaw/Alpine, having a blast at Woodward Tahoe, hitting the books at Sierra Nevada College and swimming in Lake Tahoe!
What is your favorite city and why? It’s a tie between Barcelona, Espana and Cairns, Australia. Barcelona is beautiful and great for skateboarding, while Cairns is on the coast and has the great barrier reef close by!
What was your favorite utensil when you applied? Knife
If you walked in on your wife/husband with another man/woman what would you do? I hope I will never encounter this experience!
What is your favorite coffee drink? I know it isn’t coffee, but my beverage of choice is the green tea chai.
What’s in your picnic basket? A sandwich, a banana, lots of water and maybe some granola.
What’s at the top of your travel bucket list? Summer 2014 my dad and I are going to Maccu Pichu in Peru, then to Brazil for the World Cup. I can’t wait, I’ve always loved soccer, so going to the world cup in the soccer capital of the world is a dream come true. Also, I am excited to check out South America, other than Antarctica it is the only continent I have never visited.
What is one thing you are extremely proud of? Living/Traveling overseas — I had an amazing childhood and am truly blessed.
I’d really love to learn how to… Play the guitar or piano.
If I had to choose between the following for a pet — dragon; alligator; monkey; eagle; rat — I would pick: I’d go Dragon, without any hesitation. That would be rad.
I couldn’t live without… My skateboard, some sunglasses, and my contact lenses.
I’m really good at… Penny Pinching
My idea of a perfect day is… It would probably have to take place in SoCal, but I would wake up early, get to the ski resort by 9, shred all morning, head to the city and hit the skate park for a few hours around lunchtime, then get a burrito and go surfing until sunset!
