Favorite Movie: “It’s a Wonderful Life”
“It’s a Wonderful Life” represents everything I believe in — faith, family, love, hope, community. These are the values I grew up with and continue to live by. Plus, it just makes me feel good! Just for fun, the Jason Bourne series, I love all that action!!

Favorite book: “Washington,” by Ron Chernow
A few years ago I read “John Adams,” by David McCullough. As a result, I began a literary journey to learn our nation’s history through our Presidents lives. Several books by Doris Kearns Goodwin and John Meacham brought me to “Washington,” by Ron Chernow, my eighth epic biography about Presidents.

Favorite Song: Marvin Gaye, “Here My Dear”
An incredibly cohesive album start to finish. Blending jazz, R&B and soul. Themed around his falling in love and divorce from Anna Gordy. The album was made as compensation for alimony. Every track is riddled with raw emotional nerves and Marvin’s pain.
