Hi, I was born in London, and moved to the U.S over 20 Years ago. Brooklyn has been my second home ever since, and I love it!!
Working as a Personal Assistant for a technical company here in NYC keeps me busy, I guess you could say, being organized is just up my alley!
I love entertaining not just during the holiday season, but any excuse to cook up a delicious dish and have friends over.
When I can, travelling abroad to see family, and spending quality time with them is a must whenever possible.
We all need down time in our lives!
