WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FILM GENRE?
My favorite film genre is anything but horror films.
WHAT IS THE FIRST FILM YOU REMEMBER SEEING AS A CHILD?
I remember watching (the original Hayley Mills) Parent Trap on repeat and driving my parents absolutely crazy. They would take me and my sister to the movie store and try anything to get us to pick something. "This one also has Hayley Mills!" "This one also involves a trap of some sort!" But it was the only movie I would ever let them pick. I still have entire sections of it memorized and quote it in my everyday life.
WHAT WAS THE FIRST FILM YOU SAW MORE THAN ONCE?
No joke, I've seen (the original Hayley Mills) Parent Trap two billion four hundred seventy six thousand and two times. I've seen the Lindsay Lohan version 0.5 times.
WHAT MOVIES DO YOU WATCH WHEN YOU’RE NESTING AT HOME?
These days, I'm more into binge-watching online television shows than watching movies: Orange is the New Black. Transparent. Kimmy Schmidt. House of Cards. Arrested Development. Anything where I can get the episodes all at once.
WHAT FILM DO YOU MOST OFTEN RECOMMEND TO FRIENDS?
I feel like it would be a real missed opportunity if I didn't say (the original Hayley Mills) Parent Trap here.
WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO AT THIS YEAR’S REEL PRIDE FILM FESTIVAL?
I'm looking forward to seeing (and hearing) a Fresno audience watch Addicted to Fresno. I'm looking forward to getting audience feedback about the programming this year. Looking forward to meeting more great people in the LGBTQ community here in the Valley. Really looking forward to taking a nap on Monday the 21st.
