Tell us a little bit about where you’re from! I’m from Stamford, CT, a city where there are trees in the north, the beach in the south, and skyscrapers in the middle.
If I could jump into any book… Harry Potter – flying broomsticks and pumpkin juice!
My favorite children’s book is…The Hobbit because it’s about someone reinventing themselves and overcoming impossible odds.
Families should see The Little Red Fish… because it’s better than watching regular old fish in a tank.
Three things most people would be surprised to learn about me are:
I’m very good at knitting and crochet
I love to play golf
I once spent an afternoon doing 1,000 pogo-stick jumps…but not in a row…just added all together.
