Favorite color?

Favorite things to eat?
Never met a good steak I didn’t like, but I love to cook almost anything (Italian is probably what I do best, but I’ll try almost anything.) I also love seafood. I’m a little bit of a pizza snob, being from the east coast, but that’s another conversation.

Favorite Movies or TV shows?
I’m a HUGE Law & Order fan, so of course SVU. I also love most of the “Chicago” shows that are on (Chicago Fire, Med, PD), Game of Thrones & Penny Dreadful. As far as movies, almost everything Marvel and on the serious side, I think Glory is one of the most powerful movies ever made.

Favorite Authors?
I’m not a big reader, but Stephen King seems to hold my interest the best. Misery (If you saw the movie, the book was so much better!) is my favorite.

Hobbies, Pastimes & Sports?
I have stunt kites that I need to fly and take advantage of all this wind here in NM! I’m am also learning how to play the bass guitar (In my head I play just like Marcus Miller … In reality, not so much … but maybe someday. ). As far as sports I am a die-hard Yankee fan, Giant fan and also like the Packers (been to Lambeau Field .. It should be on your bucket list!)

Who are your favorite Oasis artists?
Earth, Wind & Fire and Stevie Wonder … David Sanborn is my all-time favorite sax player. I’m a huge Al Jarreau fan as well (saw them together in concert in NY). David Benoit had me at “Linus & Lucy”. I also love A Capella music like Take 6 & Naturally 7

What’s on your IPod now?
Pretty much EVERYTHING: All of the above mentioned, plus Jon Cleary, Zac Brown Band, Earth, Wind & Fire, Metallica, Blake Shelton, Jackie Robinson, Maroon 5, Pink, Muse, Corrine Bailey Rae …

Where would you go on your dream vacation?
Alaskan Cruise sounds the most appealing right now, but I’ve been to Aruba and would love to go back.

Do you have Pets?
Yes, and mostly rescues (always the best!)  3 dogs (Yellow lab/Shepherd mix, Border Collie/King Charles Spaniel mix and Black Lab/Pit mix), 4 cats, 4 birds (2 African Greys and an Alexandrine Parakeet & Ring Neck Parakeet) and a fish named Bruce.

Anything else?
Whether you listen to, play or just enjoy music, make it an important part of your life. I know a lot of musical people and it definitely keeps you young.
