Aside from watch TCM, what do you do?

I'm a Media Specialist (got my BA in Film). So, I edit, film, digitize old tapes, run auditoriums, and help my Team who make awesome videos.


What’s your favorite movie snack?

Popcorn or Nestle Crunch. Also, Coke Icees. Mmmm.


What’s your favorite part of TCM?

I love watching movies that I saw very young that aren't shown anywhere else except on TCM and reliving those memories. I also love being introduced to new old films and seeing the post-film commentary.


What’s your favorite movie genre?

Ooo, that's tough. I love comedies, romance, adventure, sci-fi, drama, animated, documentary, film noir... but if I had to choose one, it would be adventure or fantasy.


Who’s your favorite actor or actress or filmmaker of all time? And why?

Again, tough since there are so many greats! I love Jimmy Stewart and Cary Grant. Both were great at playing the Everyman with humor and elevated grace and could do any genre thrown at them. Fredric March was also phenomenal.

I love Elizabeth Taylor and Katharine Hepburn, too. Great beauties with even greater depth and talent.


Who would you be thrilled to meet, and what would you say?

I would love to meet Tom Hanks. He seems so genuine and hilarious and I've been watching him since I was a toddler in movies. I would thank him for making my life greater with his movies being a part of them and also thank him for all of the work he did to make the World War II National Memorial happen.


What do you collect?

I have over 120 autographs. I started writing stars almost 20 years ago and got my first photos from Debbie Reynolds and Lauren Bacall. I also have autographs ranging from Luise Rainer and Shirley Temple to Red Buttons, Tony Randall, Charlton Heston, Dick Van Dyke, all of the Golden Girls, Christopher Plummer, Ricardo Montalban, and many more. I also collect Funko figures and Barbies.


If you had to pick just one, what would be your favorite movie?

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King or It's a Wonderful Life. I can't choose (you can see from these answers I tend to be indecisive haha)!
