It's been over three decades since I first discovered a passion for movies. One momentous evening in 1977 my sister and brother introduced me to Star Wars and it forever changed my life. I relocated to Los Angeles after receiving a BA in Theatre and lived in the valley for nineteen years.

My husband and I are currently enjoying life as expats in the beautiful city of Shanghai, China.
