Hobbies

I enjoy being outdoors with my husband, Kirk, as much as possible…hiking, fishing, camping, biking, boating, gardening, and most especially growing my skills as a nature photographer.

Favorite Food

Any and everything you can find in sea – as long as it’s NOT fried.

Favorite Musicians

I’m a Rock n’ Roll girl from the 80’s, and Iron Maiden will always hold the coveted All-Time Fave prize in my heart (amazing in concert!), but Prince is a close second. My husband’s influence helped expand my favorites playlist to include SoCal bands (311 and Incubus) and classic hip-hop (Eric B. & Rakim and Run-D.M.C.).

Favorite Movies

There are so many movies I would consider my favorites, but I’m really all about laughing my way through a movie. Comedies like This is Spinal Tap, Tropic Thunder, Best in Show and Blazing Saddles are just a few of my go-to chucklers.

Favorite TV Show

I’m more of a “passive” tv watcher… it’s on but I’m not really paying attention to it. The shows that do capture my attention are Bob’s Burgers, Letterkenny and reruns of The Office.

Favorite Books

I read a lot, and nothing in the last 30 years has been able to knock To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee from the #1 Fave spot. But in recent years, I’ve discovered some contenders including, Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert, The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz and Women Who Run with the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estés.
