My first experience with DK: I worked backstage for Laura Glover, changing lighting gels on the sidelights, seeing these incredible people dance on the stage a few feet away from me. When I was finally able to see a performance from the front, it was a totally different experience: the movement, lights, costumes and emotions were stunning.

Outside DK, people might find me: Gardening at home, riding my bike, hanging out with my family who live nearby, or often taking my four dogs for a car ride.

What I love best about working in the arts: I love the interesting, caring, and emotional people I meet in the arts, and seeing their creations on a stage or in a gallery. My artistic talent is appreciation.

My Zen place: At a certain cottage on the shores of Lake Michigan, watching a sunset with my feet in the warm sand. Ahhhhh!

Something quirky about me that people might be surprised to learn: I love Tom Lehrer's songs! I grew up hearing them and sang them to my kids at bedtime. "The Irish Ballad" is a favorite.

Guilty pleasure: Cheese, Dewars and The Big Bang Theory
