Fun Facts About Andrea

Something most people don’t know about me is that in a previous life, I was a break dancer and a poetry slammer.  If I tried to do either today, I’d probably break a hip or a lip.  

On a trip to Greece in my twenties, I fell down forty marble steps at the Acropolis. I was talking to a friend when a man ran diagonally in front of me. I caught the back of his foot and the rest is history. Amazingly, I managed to escape with no broken bones and I didn’t spill one drop of my diet Coke! 

I only worry about the big stuff in life, like when I ask my 11-year-old nephew what he wants to be when he grows up and he responds with, “Either someone who makes video games or a clerk at Dollar General. Whichever one is easier.” 

Losing so many members of my immediate family has certainly had an impact on me, in ways I never could have imagined. By telling our stories, I keep my family’s spirit and memories alive and well. This has been an important part of my emotional and spiritual healing.  

Favorite movie: Life is Beautiful (Directed by Roberto Benini). Favorite non-fiction book: Pitch Perfect by Bill McGowen. Favorite play I’ve directed: Top Girls by Carol ChurchillMost challenging role as an actor: Ventriloquist, Audrey Hart, in BellesFavorite song: Can I only have one? Okay, then. Better Be Good To Me by Tina Turner (makes me want to dance and I LOVE dancing). 

My favorite time of year is fall, when all the magic happens in the world. Leaves turn from brilliant red to burnt orange and yellow. Pumpkin spice EVERYTHING reigns over the world and I’m a willing victim. And then there’s Oktoberfest and the most delicious beer. Yes, I’m definitely a fall kinda girl!
