Way to get myself moving in the morning: Remember my to-do list

Idea of perfect happiness: Not perfect, but would help a lot: All of Baton Rouge’s major arts organizations receive complete and generous funding. Then we could really show our community what we can do!

My motto for life: The best things in your life are not things. Second place: Everything is better with bacon.
