I work as a meteorologist, but my life orbits around interests such as photography, food, cooking, film and language. I like to travel and learn of different cultures, and I am energized by the experience of the new and the unexpected. My visits to Italy have been the most memorable, but since meeting my Peruvian partner in 2007, we have travelled mostly in Latin America (waiting for the day when he can move to the U.S.). With him I have transitioned form more backpacking/hiking adventures to urban environments and historical areas. There is much to see on the planet, and many interesting people to enrich life.
