What do you like most about being on the Bespoke Audio Visual team?
The creativity and comradery. We truly are a team, which enables us to achieve some pretty amazing stuff. We are an excellent group of humans who are dedicated to our craft and pushing the boundaries of what we can accomplish with technology.
How do you spend your free time?
Riding a bike that goes nowhere. I love spin classes and am looking forward to getting back to the social part of in person classes!
If you didn’t need sleep, what would you do with your extra time?
I would definitely read more. I have a stack of 3-6 books on my bedside table that I am always thinking about reading, but don’t dedicate the time often.
What job do you think you’d be really good at?
Friends have joked that I should have a second career as a travel agent. I love researching vacation spots, planning trips and building daily tourism itineraries. I find planning travel in advance to be really engaging – it’s an exciting build up to a great adventure!
Have you taken up a new hobby during the pandemic?
My husband and I bought a house in 2018 which had an unfinished basement. We spent 2020 renovating/building it out into a beautiful and useful space for our family, which was a very satisfying project. We did 90% of the work ourselves and learned a LOT. I also started baking more – though I never perfected sourdough!
We look forward to continuing to share our team spotlight series with you. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn to be notified when they are posted!
