Q & A with Amy Dreisler 

TR: What excites you about Men On Boats?
AD: I’m excited to be a part of this adventure with nine female actors, a mostly female design team, a female director and female assistant director. The future is female!

 

TR: What are some of your favorite places to go adventuring in Oregon?
AD: I’m new to Oregon so haven’t had tons of time to go adventuring here yet, but we’ve made it to the coast a couple of times, which is breathtaking, and hiking/sightseeing along the Columbia River gorge. The view is truly spectacular.

 

TR: What has been the greatest adventure of your life so far?
AD: My girlfriend and I spent a week in Iceland a few years ago. I am fascinated by cold remote places. It is such a beautiful country: rocky, rugged, ever evolving with active volcanoes, geysers, hot springs and the sea. We saw the Northern lights and even on a cloudy night they are other worldly. We got muddy and sea sprayed. We got almost as far north as the Arctic Circle. I learned some Icelandic. It was an amazing adventure!
