Where are you from?
Originally from London, grew up in Santa Fe.
What is your favorite thing about New Mexico?
I love that I can go from downtown to the middle of nowhere in the mountains in less than 30 minutes. Also, it smells so damn good here.
What are you reading/watching/listening to lately?
I just finished Jia Tolentino’s Trick Mirror which blew me away. Tolentino articulates in the most lyrical way all of the convoluted thoughts I have about the illusions of life today. Also, she’s wildly smart, 30 years old, and a staff writer at the New Yorker, which is insane. I’ve also been reading Alison Roman’s cookbooks, to which I entirely attribute my sudden interest in cooking, something I thought I’d never have. Been watching The Weekly, the New York Times investigative reporting show, it’s kind of like the tv version of The Daily, the New York Times podcast I listen to religiously. I sense a theme here.
What are you looking forward to this year?
2019 was certifiably insane for me, so I’m crossing my fingers for a smoother year. I’m looking forward to experiencing more of Santa Fe – like a total hermit, I’ve been oblivious to much of the events and opportunities in town (most of which I’ve learned recently through the SWC calendar and newsletter, thanks Lauren!). Also looking forward to improving my kitchen skills and almost anything that doesn’t involve looking at my phone.
