Aside from watch TCM, what do you do?

I am a middle school English teacher.


What’s your favorite movie snack?

Junior mints and a root beer!


What’s your favorite part of TCM?

I love that they strive to reach multiple audiences through classics across the eras. I also really like how they tie in the trivia, fun facts, and educational pieces to the programming. It's like being in a class watching and participating!


What’s your favorite movie genre?

So hard to say because I love so many different genres! If I had to pick three, however, I would say musicals, film noir, and suspense are among the tops.


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

I really love Alfred Hitchcock. I think his films are just so masterfully crafted and filled with suspense, thrills, and more plot twists and turns than one could ever imagine! I like how he did similar pictures throughout his career, but also varied his plot lines and themes.


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

Meryl Streep. I would probably be at a loss for words, but I would immediately tell her that she is a true legend!


What do you collect?

I have 11 movie posters in my one-bedroom apartment, so I consider that a collection! I also collect magnets and bobbleheads. The TCM Robert Osborne bobblehead proudly sits on my desk!


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

Although it's really hard to say and I do have a steady top 10 that could each claim the #1 spot, Gone With the Wind has always been so timeless for me. The scope of its production design is just magnificent. Top-notch performances for the main roles, as well as some outstanding supporting performances.
