Creative Mornings is a free, monthly breakfast lecture series for creative types. There are currently six chapters around the world: Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Zurich, Chicago, and London. There’s always interesting people, and there’s always coffee. Sometimes there’re bloody marys. Bloody maries. Bloodys mary?
Anyway, each event includes a 20 minute lecture, followed by a 20 minute group discussion. The gathering begins at 8:30am at the beautiful TypeKit offices, with the presentation starting at 9:00am. Listen: it’s worth it. And you’ll be back to work by 10:00am.
This month, the San Francisco chapter of Creative Mornings welcomes Anna Rascouët-Paz. Who’s Anna? Admittedly, she’s my wife. Even if she wasn’t, though, I’d SO want her to be. Here’s part of the reason why:
Anna Rascouët-Paz is a journalist by trade. Both French and Colombian by birth, she has lived in eight countries on four continents, speaking a handful of languages to match. Anna spent six years as a segment producer and financial reporter at Bloomberg News in Europe, navigating global currency markets and covering international political and economic events such as the World Economic Forum and the G8. She now lives and works in the tech-and-design capital of San Francisco.
Currently, Anna hosts the Annual Reviews Conversation Series podcast, in which she interviews some of the world’s brightest and most influential researchers. Recent topics include the intersection of economics and social issues, the importance of interdisciplinary study, and the consequences of scientific illiteracy. Anna can’t imagine going through life without asking questions.
While you’re at it, go check out Anna’s awesome site While You Were Sleeping (@WYWSleeping on Twitter), where she rants about important, worldly things fluently in like 5 languages or something.
