On the weekends, I love to: Sleep and catch up on television watching. I'm a homebody.

My favorite kind of music is: A little bit of everything, as long as it sounds good.

My favorite food is: Almost anything Italian, but a weakness for good ol' Southern food.

Hidden Talents: I have a photographic memory.  It's a gift and a curse.

Hobbies: Movies, technology and photography.

Most Memorable Story:  I don't really have one that I could call my 'most memorable', but there are ones that do stick out more than others.  Usually, anything involving natural disasters or animals sticks out.
