FAVORITE MOVIE: Hard to narrow it down to just one. Some of my favs are 'Urban Cowboy',‘Arthur’, ‘American Beauty’, ‘Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”, “Office Space” and “Gone With The Wind”.
WHAT'S NEXT ON YOUR 'TO DO' LIST: Read more, write more, relax more. Rinse and repeat.
FIRST MEMORY OF "SWEET EMOTION" BY AEROSMITH: “Toys In The Attic” came out right before I turned 11. Even as a kid, I was a total music freak. The kids in the neighborhood and I used to play a lot of board games and we always had the radio on. I always made them really crank it up when the song came on. And, of course, I’d sing along.
