Joy constantly learns and enriches herself with encounters with all types of people, colorful places, and exotic cultures.
An avid fan of classical literature, books by the likes of Amy Tan, J.D. Salinger, and F. Scott Fitzgerald can be found scattered across her bedroom floor. Her favorite book of all time continues to be Webster’s Dictionary. Don’t let her profession as a commercial film director fool you. Joy will always prefer books over their film adaptations.
