Why HSH? I love this place.

What causes or non-profits do you support and why? I am a member of Celebration Theatre, a non-profit professional theatre company here in Los Angeles. I believe in their mission and I believe theatre makes us better, more empathetic humans.

What is one thing people would be surprised to learn about you? I have moved 35 times in my life.

What piece of advice would you give to a graduating sixth grader? Keep moving forward. But you will always carry HSH in your heart.
