WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FILM GENRE?
I love a good comedy or drama.


WHAT IS THE FIRST FILM YOU REMEMBER SEEING AS A CHILD?
The first movie I remember seeing as a kid was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the Original one)


WHAT WAS THE FIRST FILM YOU SAW MORE THAN ONCE?
My mom would always make us watch the Sound of Music. Anytime it had come on TV, we always watched. To this day I still do and remember my childhood.


WHAT MOVIES DO YOU WATCH WHEN YOU’RE NESTING AT HOME?
I am such a big kid it is Bedknobs and Broomsticks


WHAT FILM DO YOU MOST OFTEN RECOMMEND TO FRIENDS?
I really don’t recommend movies as there are too many to choose from.


WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO AT THIS YEAR’S REEL PRIDE FILM FESTIVAL?
Every year I look forward to talking to the filmmakers and stars. I love to hear their unique stories as to what inspired them to produce their movies and their personal history. To me, it adds to the experience and adds a deeper level to the movie experience.
