- Hometown: Palos Verdes, California
- Hobbies: Drawing, painting, photography, reading, collecting chachkies, making up/playing games, singing (karaoke any chance I get), going to museums and of course Facebook stalking!
- Favorite TV shows: Cash Cab, No Reservations, Mad Men, Seinfeld, Friends, and though I don’t generally admit this openly, So You Think You Can Dance and Glee
- All-time favorite TV character: Dr. House
- Actor or actress people have said you resemble: Lindsay Lohan (Parent Trap days) but I’ve also gotten Julianne Moore, Susan Sarandon, and recently Jayma Mays (which is why I watched Glee for the first time…)
- Radio station or program I am always tuned to: Elliot in the Morning (DC101) or NPR – but usually I just play my iPod on shuffle.
- Preferred movie genre: Tough to say, as I have eclectic taste. I’m not a fan of slasher/gore movies, so anything else is preferred.
- A movie that everyone should see once and why: What Dreams May Come (1998) – It is one of the most beautiful and tragic love stories I’ve ever seen. The imagery throughout the movie is inspiring, and I have never gotten through it without at least one tear. A great movie to watch snuggled up with a loved one, bowl of popcorn and box of tissues.
- Favorite movie: To pick one movie is near impossible! How about top five? Hook is my ultimate bedtime movie, I’ve probably seen it over 1000 times (I watched the VHS until it broke and have since upgraded to the DVD – Thanks, Mom). Almost Famous, Amélie, The Big Lebowski and Pulp Fiction make up the rest of the top five. (But I hate leaving out a classic like The Princess Bride, or brilliance like V for Vendetta!)
- Most frequented website: Google
- Blog that I must read daily: 1000awesomethings.com – but I have to ask: do Facebook statuses count?
- Personal quote: “Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the things you can think up if only you try!” –Dr. Seuss
