Meet a Westsider:
Amy Filipiak

Profession/Occupation... mother/small business manager.

What I like most about the Westside is... the diversity of its residents and its architecture.

If I could change anything about the Westside, it would be... thoughtless construction.

A good movie Iíve seen recently is... ďAn Incovenient Truth.Ē It may not be high on entertaitment value, but it is a must see.

The worst advice Iíve ever gotten was... Iím not one to take advice. My mistakes rest squarely on my shoulders.

If I could meet someone famous, Iíd like to meet... Canít answer that. Many famous people seem unremarkable. Many non-famous people I have met are fascinating and inspiring.

The next time I travel, Iím going to... San Francisco with my daughter, Hannah.

My favorite childhood memory is... sitting on the deck with my dad at our home in Black Forest and looking for discernable shapes in the clouds.

My favorite summer pastime is... bike riding on cool summer days.

Something good Iíve read is.. The New Yorker magazine. I have a difficult time finishing novels.

My pet peeve is... bullies.

If I won the lottery, Iíd... invest well for my family and travel to remote places. I already own everything I need, so a wild spending spree is out.
