I am often described as calm and easygoing by my friends and colleagues, which makes me happy, because that's how I try to live my life and make my way through the world. I cook for love and for a living, and I live with a wonderful man who gets to reap the benefits! I love animals and have no allergies (and have a cat). I am fascinated by travel, though I don't get to do it very often. I'm definitely more right than left brained; I sing, dream, teach and create when I can and when the muse is willing. Of the places I've visited, Seattle and Amsterdam are two of my absolute favorites, and of the places I've lived, NYC still has my heart. I love many, many types of music, I'm a huge fan of spy, sci-fi and graphic novel movies, fantasy, historical fiction and a bit of the supernatural as well. Travel style? Light and exploratory. Looking forward to meeting you!
