Age: 27. Lives in: St. Louis Park. Occupation: TV host/producer for the CW Twin Cities, ISOC Snocross event announcer, creator of Minnesota's Red Dress Collection.

Q: What's your favorite part about your job at the CW?

A: I've never been able to sit at a desk all day, so having the ability to get outside of the office and meet new people every day is a dream come true.

Q: Who are some of your favorite celebs you've interviewed?

A: Some of my favorites have been the less serious, lighthearted interviews I've done with local athletes like Christian Ponder, Percy Harvin, Michael Cuddyer and the St. Paul Saints.

Q: You're a big proponent of local fashion. Do you have a favorite local designer?

A: I'm always amazed at the level of talent we have right in our own backyard. I'll say all 16 local designers we have for Red Dress this year -- stay tuned for the list!

Q: What are three of your favorite things about the Twin Cities?

A: Walker Art Center, Nordstrom's shoe department and locally owned restaurants like Bar La Grassa and HauteDish.

Q: This winter you'll be an announcer for the ISOC Snocross races on CBS Sports. Do you have a favorite winter activity?

A: Playing in the snow with my little 2-year-old, Sophia. She is still in awe when it snows, so that makes braving the cold a lot more fun. I'll wait a few years to put her on a snowmobile.
