Aside from watch TCM, what do you do?
I am a writer with a full-time gig creating internal communications and training materials for a large healthcare company. I do some freelance writing and blogging as time permits and am an aspiring screenwriter. I currently am a member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir (I sing bass). I also have the privilege of being president of the Salt Lake City local chapter of the TCM Backlot.
What’s your favorite movie snack?
Popcorn and a Diet Coke (with extra ice).
What’s your favorite part of TCM?
The network's stellar programming, which is a perfect combination of new discoveries and old favorites.
What’s your favorite movie genre?
Who’s your favorite actor or actress or filmmaker of all time? And why?
A favorite actress is Cyd Charisse. While maybe not known for her acting chops, her beauty, skill, and style absolutely slay me. I could watch the "Dancing in the Dark" scene from The Band Wagon every day.
Who would you be thrilled to meet, and what would you say?
Walt Disney. I'd first thank him for all of the happiness that he has brought to my life, then I'd hope to have an in-depth discussion with him about all of the animated features he produced and the creation of Disneyland.
What do you collect?
Diecast cars. A favorite in my collection is a 1:18 scale model of the 1968 Ford Mustang GT fastback that Steve McQueen drove in Bullitt. (And seeing Bullitt in the legendary TCL Chinese Theatre during the 2018 TCM Classic Film Festival was a dream come true.) I also have a swell collection of Mickey Mouse art, toys, watches, memorabilia, and ephemera (again, bringing it back to Walt Disney).
If you had to pick just one, what would be your favorite movie?
