Rachel answered some questions for us in preparation for her talk on Thursday! Thanks Rachel!

What is a surprising fact people would never guess about you?

A few years ago, I accidentally high-kicked a girl’s front tooth out. She’s fine now. We’re friends. 

Creamy or Crunchy Peanut Butter (favorite nut or nut free spread)?

I go Crunchy Peanut Butter all day on my sandos, but with no disrespect to creamy.

Talents & interests outside of art and design?

I have a million bajillion interests, very few of which have resulted in talents. I collect vinyl records and DJ with Freeform Portland Radio. I really enjoy hiking and backpacking. I have a social art project called Suffragette Studio. And my most current quarantine coping practice is learning how to play the drums. 

Favorite record at the moment? 

George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass is my religion on the turntable. 

What is the best way to start the day?

For me, it’s about drinking coffee while listening to KMHD radio, and reading a poem or two from Mary Oliver’s ‘Devotions’.
