Q&A with Emma Currens

What TV or movie character best exemplifies you and why?

Ray from Uptown Girls. I was a ballerina growing up and I’m a bit of a neat freak. However, Brittany Murphy’s carefree character, Molly Gun, is my alter ego! 

What is your favorite place in Chicago that isn't a typical tourist destination?

When it’s a nice Sunday, you can find me at the Logan Square farmer’s market. It’s my favorite market in the city! You can get all your produce for the week, a hipster fix and a vanilla-fig and black pepper snow cone all in one trip.

Would you rather have the office stocked 24/7 with Starbucks coffee or Garrett's popcorn?

Intelligentsia cortados please!

One thing people wouldn't know about you is?

When I was a kid, I did a handful of voiceover jobs, and was in radio commercials for small ad campaigns. 

If you could live anywhere else in the world, where would you live?

One of the cities that makes up the Cinque Terre in the Italian Riviera. The people here live by the saying “la dolce fare niente,” the sweetness of doing nothing. They also have delicious seafood, wine and stunning views of the Mediterranean.
