“I enjoy almost every kind of music from rock, pop and country to jazz, blues, big band, classical and opera. When it’s performed live and outdoors, that’s even better.”

“I’d been to six of the seven continents before I was three years old. Unfortunately, I remember none of it.”

“I look forward to Halloween year-round. My favorite movie will forever be Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Xmas and my personal library is stocked with horrors, psychological thrillers and true crime novels. I’m planning to start taking an annual trip in the fall, where I visit a new location with a historical, “spooky” background every year. First stop—the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast Museum. (Suggestions welcome!)”

Kristina Valdez
Associate Editor
“Coming home from my first PPAI Expo, I ran into and got a picture with the rapper Common at DFW International Airport!”
