In a Few Words...


Which talent would you most like to have?
I would like to be able to sing well and play the piano

What do you consider your greatest achievement?
That I have been able to work exclusively in theater, television and movies since I was 19-years-old.

Which word or phrase do you most overuse?
Terrific! More is more and less is not enough.

What do you look for on the Craft Services table?
Raisins and Fritos. Unless cherries are in season.

Please name a benefit of being an SDSA member.
Getting to know the other Set Decorators and the camaraderie. Last winter I finished my 13th movie with Production Designer Bill Arnold and I was recommended to him originally by both Rosemary Brandenburg SDSA and Jay Hart SDSA 19 years ago.
