Additional Skills

I am an avid reader and writer - study yoga and have (and this CAN be verified....) an exceptional sense of the absurd and silly....my sense of humor and ability to 'play well with others' has kept me out of (most) trouble and creatively employed. I have lived many years in the NW and know the region well...this helps with the wide variety of difficult-to-pronounce names. I have been a trainer, organizer and employee of a variety of film festivals including FILMEX in Los Angeles, Telluride Film Festival and Seattle International Film Festival and have a love of film....especially the 'oldies'
