What do you do at Pilgrim?
I am a Supervisor working within the multi-talented Rights & Deliverables department.
What’s the coolest project you’ve worked on?
Farming Detroit. Beautifully shot and edited, old school, cinema verite style documentary that follows Detroiters who are spearheading the city’s urban farming movement. The enthusiasm and dedication of these young people is quite remarkable. And then there is the sharp-witted Pinky Jones who quite frankly deserves her own series.

What’s the best thing that happened to you this week, either at work or outside of it?
I’ve actually just returned from a weeklong vacation to visit friends on Oahu. Stayed at a wonderful Airbnb in Kahala just steps from the renowned Kahala Hotel & Resort. I recommend avoiding Waikiki at all costs unless you enjoy large Vegas-type crowds. Though by all means partake in a happy hour drink at the legendary Mai Tai Bar located in the Royal Hawaiian Hotel where you’ll be treated to fantastic beachfront views of Diamond Head.
Fill in the blank: If you really knew me, you’d know_____.
I’m a Turner Classic Movies FANatic. Specifically westerns, war/historical films and anything John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, Charlton Heston, Kirk Douglas, John Ford, Howard Hawks and David Lean. The annual TCM Film Festival in Hollywood is always great fun. Debbie Reynolds was a fan favorite until her recent passing. I’m actually named after her popular song from the film “Tammy and the Bachelor”. Although I would have to vote Barbara Stanwyck as my all-time favorite classic film actress.
What’s your favorite Pilgrim show?
Street Outlaws because I can’t wait to see how Farmtruck and Azn top last season’s nitrous chair stunt. Though I honestly think that might be unwise if not physically impossible to beat.
Who do you nominate for Pilgrim feature and why?
Brooke Heatley. Fellow military brat and one of the most talented, super-coolest Pilgrim’s I know.
