Your first job ever (and at which age) ?

Center (GNC) at the mall trying to sell soybeans to people walking by. (I don't think I was very good!)

Favorite country
  To live in: America, Favorite country I've visited so far -England. Country I most want to visit - Australia and Asia.

Which 3 things would you take with you on a remote island ?
  Tough tricky question! Let's see, I'd take my husband, my dogs and a good book! (I lead a very dashing life)

Do you like working in film, television or stage best ?
  I like them all!!

Did you ever have things go wrong while performing live on stage ?
  Once I was doing a show at a very small theatre in NYC and as I made my grand entrance, dressed as an elf, mind you, the entire set fell around me in one loud explosive mess. When the dust cleared, we all sort of looked at each other, pretended nothing catastrophic had happened and proceeded to finish the play on top of the set. I've done shows where people have walked off-
stage in the middle of a scene or have forgotten their lines completely, or have just started making up lines. Doors not opening when they should, doors opening when they shouldn't, getting stuck in revolving doors. There have been times when props have fallen into the audience, when people have fallen into
the audience and when the audience has tried to come on stage. The list goes on and on and on!

What is your definition of luck ?
  Interesting question....I guess anytime when things don't suck!

What would you do in another way if you could go back in time ?
  I think I would have moved out to California sooner than I did. But I must say,
I don't have many regrets in my life.

In your opinion, what is the greatest invention of all times ?
  Boy, that is a tough one. Fire was a good invention..... as was the wheel. Electricity and the car are high on the list, not to mention indoor plumbing!
Don't know if I can narrow this down to just one all time invention. I think what's changed people's lives in recent times so drastically is the home computer and the Internet.

What do you take strength from ?
  What I do take strength from is my relationship with my husband.

What are your expectations for the future ?
  The most exciting thing I'm doing right now is this production company I've started with my husband. We've done a lot of music videos, shorts, commercials and have a few features in development. My expectations for the company are boundless.
