Where is your favorite place to grab a cup of coffee/morning drink in the city?

My kitchen. Olympia Coffee freshly ground, Chemex, brewed by weight. It’s the only way to satisfy my coffee snob soul from beans to brew. If pressed, Victrola on Pike between Bellevue and Melrose brews a solid cup.

What is your best piece of advice for a prospective student?

The admissions process is a discernment where the ideal outcome is you finding a college that will nourish and push you in through the process of becoming the person and scholar you are meant to be, not a foot race that culminates in a trophy you display on your mantle.

Where is your favorite spot to grab a meal in Seattle?

Plum Bistro, 12th & Pike, for lunch. Get the macho burrito as a salad. For a special evening out, Violet (12th & Howell). Chef Belickis’ attention to detail and respect for ingredients is second to none. I stan the American Omakase tasting menu.
