I love to go to the movies. My favorite actors are Al Pacino, Robin Williams and Brad Pitt. My favorite actresses are Meryl Streep, Judi Dench, Katharine Hepburn and Audrey Hepburn. I have a twin sister named Randi. We also have two brothers named Greg and Geoff. I adore my nephew Cody and his ID bracelet is my good luck charm. I wish I could sing. I’m deathly afraid of snakes. I don’t like chocolate or cookies. My birthday is January 6, 1975. I love to make people laugh and some consider me the biggest practical jokester on the team. I wanted to be an astronaut when I was little. I love to play golf and I love the New England Patriots !
