I am a people person who enjoys music, gardening, yoga, outdoor activities, cooking, traveling, and woodworking. I am a pianist and music publisher, and enjoy immersing myself in the arts. I have a host personality and like to make sure that friends and relatives enjoy themselves when they visit. My mind is open to listening and learning from the experiences and perspectives of others. And I believe that life gives us cause to celebrate every day.
