Get to Know Me
One of my favorite activities is cooking. I am in constant search of great taste and aromas. I am a foodie with all the word’s nuances (from collard greens to brussels sprouts and from fried chicken to escargot!) and I have been a foodie since learning to cook in my Grandma Melissa’s kitchen as a little girl.
In addition to food, I'm really into architecture, nature, music, history, and film.
I love the beauty of architecture, mainly Victorian and Queen Anne styles and the brownstones of NYC.
I especially love watching the emergence of buds on trees and plants in the springtime. FUN FACT: NJ has more cherry trees than Washington, DC.
I love every genre of music, especially music that makes me move. I was a dancer and dance instructor in a previous life.
I have a deep interest in historical events that have affected people in a profound way.
I am a great movie fan, of course. I have tons of movies to watch before voting for this year’s winners as a member of the academy. VIEW THE SLIDE SHOW FOR MORE OF MY FAVORITES
