What is your favorite movie?
I loved "The Founder" with Michael Keaton. It's the story of Ray Kroc, the man who grew McDonalds into a global food chain. It is one of the best movies about what it takes to build a major company, the persistence -the opening speech extoling "persistence" is worth the entire movie.
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
My childhood dream was to be President of the United States. Later I set my sights higher!
What is your favorite symphony orchestra?
Well, I'm biased. I love the L.A. Phil and the magic of going to Disney Hall to hear them. It is heaven on earth to see Joshua Bell, my favorite violin soloist, in harmony on that fantastic stage.
What is a fun fact about you many people may not know?
I love writing poetry and performing it. Even a visit to the local bank can turn poetic, as I write about the wild parrots on the roof squawking at the humans at the ATM machines below. Banks and parrots, what's not to love?
