Cartoon character you look most like or most identify with?
Judy Jetson, for the simple reason that she shared my name, but she was also a cool, futuristic teenager. The only other Judys I knew on TV as a kid—in Leave it to Beaver and Welcome Back Kotter—were horrible pests that nobody liked, which completely misrepresented Judys everywhere.
Favorite celebrity chef?
Julia Child, the OG of cooking on TV.
Would you rather time travel to the past or the future? When?
I find the 1920s and 30s a fascinating era for design, fashion and music. I have a penchant for geometric lettering (really, all the lettering), the lush patterns, exciting new inventions, and bakelite! And wouldn’t it be great to have a complete break from the digital drain for a little while?
Do you collect anything?
I have a moratorium on collecting anything, as my apartment has no more room for objects, but over the last 5 years I have collected some beautiful, vintage wood and metal type fonts. I letterpress print, and wanting a large selection of fonts to choose from means possessing the actual, three-dimensional type (unlike printing with computer fonts). They are little works of art on their own, but the whole point is to keep them in use, so it's a working collection.
What’s the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery?
A trip. Definitely a trip. But where to would be the toughest decision. I can’t get enough of traveling—to experience the arts, culture, food, nature, and architecture—and there are so many places yet to explore. Fiji, Greece, and France would be top contenders. Wait, Australia too. How big is this jackpot?
