Song currently playing in my iPod:
“Evolution of Robin Thicke” by Robin Thicke

Three songs that mean a lot to me:
Man, that’s not fair. Three?
“Close to You” by the Carpenters because it reminds me of summertime pools and my mom’s Bain de Soile orange gel smell. Heavenly.
Cat Stevens’ “Wild World ” because it reminds me of Ardsley Westchester, Jane, horses and the brilliance of Cat Stevens. Also of loving and letting go.
“Cinnamon Girl” by Neil Young
“Carry On” from Crosby, Stills & Nash because it reminds me of when my parents went out. Party was on!
“Can’t Hide Love” by Earth, Wind & Fire
Al Green’s “Greatest Hits”
Marvin Gaye’s “Lets Get it On,” Ohio Players’ “Fire” and Barry White = sex
Joni Mitchell “Blue” = girl in her teens finding her way Brilliant album

Concert that changed your life:
Well, I saw concerts at stadiums, racetracks and clubs each night and the greatest band or artist can be the best that night. It changes. And I opened for Michael jackson during the Bad tour in Europe with 75,000 people. So all the shows have changed my life.

What advice would you give to someone trying to break into your profession?

Who was your celebrity crush growing up?

Waiting at valet, cleaning dog poop off a rug. . .generally everyday is unfamous day!

What’s more dangerous: a mountain lion or a bitter ex?
I would say a mountain lion is truly more life threatening in most cases because you might not sustain injuries from an ex. Hopefully you can earn more money again after a nasty ex trys to cut you down.
