What neighborhood do you live in?

South Aurora.

Why did you choose that neighborhood?

I found a house I liked there. I’ve lived there for 10 years though I’m considering moving downtown since I love that area.

What are some of your favorite local spots?

I enjoy the Paramount Cafe, City Park, the 16th Street Mall, and the whole downtown area. I also like my cafe–GiGi’s Cafe–a lot and Megafauna where GiGi’s is situated.

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

I like to mix and match the old stuff I have. Being a small business owner has changed my style because I am not buying new clothes all the time now and have to wear what is already in my closet.
