All-time favorite TV show:One that would rank at the top is The Sopranos. Then there’s Game of Thrones, The Handmaid’s Tale, Downton Abbey, The Queen’s Gambit… too many to count.
TV show more people should watch: Call the Midwife and Killing Eve.

Favorite snack when watching TV or out at the movies:The Daily Crave Lentil Chips -- Himalayan Sea Salt flavor.
Charity more people should know about:Feeding Westchester, which is part of Feeding America’s network. I’m amazed at how many Americans may experience food insecurity at some point in their life... Also, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
Where I volunteer: I hope to begin volunteering at Feeding Westchester in the future.
The skill I have that might surprise people:I love to cycle/road bike and used to be a regionally ranked tennis player and instructor.
Favorite hobby:Gardening -- time with Mother Nature helps to keep me centered. And she can be a tough customer, so I like when her terrain challenges me, and I come through the experience in one piece, it makes me feel I accomplished something special that day.
Greatest personal accomplishment: My volunteer work with Global Volunteers of America – working with children, teachers, and doctors in Vietnam, Indonesia, Romania and Africa.
