I am a university philosophy professor and orchestra conductor. I am also a travel fan - especially getting to try specialty foods of new places. I can't stand spending my money on fancy hotels, when mostly what I do there is sleep. I'd rather spend less on a room and use the savings to splurge on concerts and restaurants.
Favorite destinations: New York City, Berlin, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Vienna, and St. Petersburg (Russia)
Favorite motto: When at first you don't succeed, redefine success.
