What's the first album you bought? You have stumped me. It's a tie between Madonna and Michael Jackson.
What's the first concert you saw? Bon Jovi. I'm always living on a prayer.
What's your favorite concert you've ever been to? Dave Matthews at Fenway Park. You can take the girl out of Boston, but never Boston out of the girl!
Preferred format: CD, vinyl, cassette, 8-Track or digital? Digital. I can take my music with me everywhere, training clients and Bluetooth in the car.
When you put your key in the ignition and turn on the radio, what station would play right now? My iPhone via Bluetooth. I need variety in my life -- it would start with "I'm in Love," by Alex Gaudino.
What's the last song played on your music player? "Girl Is on Fire," by Alicia Keys. Sun roof open, sun shining down, singing and loving life!
What's your favorite album? My own mixes. I love to mix and match for the car, hikes, clients/training, working out, relaxing, and getting ready to go out.
Who is your favorite singer or band? AC/DC. I've been known to have dance parties in my living room.
Does your computer track how many times you've played something -- if so, what's at the top of the list? "The Fighter," by Gym Class Heroes and "Finally Moving," by Pretty Lights. I tend to go from one spectrum to the other.
What was your favorite new or new-to-you album from the past year? Let's see -- Flo Rida, Wild Ones, David Guetta, Nothing But the Beat, and Avicii, The Singles. It's been a good dancing year!
What band do you wish was still together? Good question -- Van Halen.
What one song would you play if you had a world-wide radio audience? In this moment, I would share "Good Life," by OneRepublic.
Who is your favorite local artist? On Christmas day, I heard Bob Corritore , one of the finest harmonica players on the planet, who runs the Rhythm Room in Phoenix, and Handlebar-J's star Ray Herndon, while helping to serve dinner at St. Vincent De Paul with local NFL players.
What is your favorite local venue to see music? Still being new to the area, I am slowly finding my way. The Rhythm Room and Culinary Dropout are tops on my list to check out. I am open to suggestions, as I miss hearing good live music and dancing 'til the suns comes up.
What is your favorite music video? I had no idea there were still videos?! Looking back, Madonna, "Vogue." Of course, I'm sure given my profession, everyone would expect me to say Olivia Newton John's "Physical."
