Q&A with marketing director Kelsey Von Stubbe
PhotoSister: When you were young, did you imagine you would be on this particular journey in life? Why or why not?
Kelsey Von Stubbe: Yes and no. I started out as an actor and knew I was going to be involved with theatre. In college I found this specific “arts marketing” niche was the way to go. I wanted to be surrounded by theater people but still come home with a paycheck!
PS: What is the one thing you splurge on for yourself?
KVS: Right now it’s decorations for our new house. It’s a big undertaking to furnish and decorate a new place! Thank heavens we live right next to a Goodwill.
PS: What made you want to be involved with theatre?
KVS: Theatre people always tend to be a family unit. There’s never a dull moment– after all, theatre people tend to have a flare for the dramatics. But they’re my home away from home. And like family, sometimes you want to strangle them.
PS: What is your hidden talent (any party tricks)?I have this weird indent in my arm from when I broke my elbow in pre-school. Its nickname is Slurpee. KVS: People are always fascinated by it.
PS: What is your favorite restaurant pick in Seattle and the best dish on the menu?
KVS: The fish tacos at the taco truck next to Home Depot on Aurora. I finally made myself stop and eat there the other day, usually I’m so depressed after spending gazillions of dollars at Home Depot that I just drive home and eat top ramen, but that is seriously some good food in there.
PS: What makes you happy?
KVS: Naps and cheddar cheese.
PS: What personal adventure do you have in store for yourself this summer?
KVS: Juggling three jobs!
PS: What’s next on your horizon?
KVS: Hopefully a vacation and a year of therapy.
