A not-so-manicured charm

1. What neighborhood do you live in?

West Wash Park.

2. Why did you choose West Wash Park?

I moved here to be closer to my kids’ schools. West Wash Park is far enough south that I don’t have to traverse the Cherry Creek/Speer/University mess. I like the urban setting, and I love how the area maintains an eclectic, less traditional atmosphere and a charm that is not-so-manicured with its wide ranging types of homes and people. Cool restaurants are coming into the area, which is exciting. Plus, I love the walkability and the proximity to downtown and other desirable spots.

3. What are you favorite local spots?

Linger, Europa Coffee House, Wash Perk, Spot Bar and Grill, Taki Sushi, Wash Park, the Denver Botanic Gardens.

4. P.S. We love your vibe! What inspires your style?

I run an international development company, working mostly in Uganda. This experience has formed in me a global perspective and a curiosity that inspires my style.
