I love movies and a cracking good story!
Unique traits: I'm a former tap dance instructor and choreographer. My claim to fame in this arena is winning a BOTL (Best of the League) award for my choreography for Little Theater Off Broadway's "Oliver!" I am deeply passionate about animal welfare and environmental issues and continue to bug politicians about these concerns.
