I am the PR manager for the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Music.
I am mom to two fine adult boys, both classical musicians.
I am "mom" to one fine dog, Shelby, part Shepherd, part hound, I think.
I am single and enjoy ridiculously long walks in the woods with my dog. I guess that harks back to my days growing up in rural New Jersey, in Revolutionary War country, where I spent hours exploring, sometimes finding antique pill bottles in the nearby swamp.
The dog then was Laeta, a black Lab. I then moved on to Carmen, another part Shepherd. They lived to be 15 and 16, respectively. Shelby is six.
I read a lot, especially history. I recently finished David McCullough's "1776" and got a kick out of mentally revisiting the area where I was raised. Now I'm 3/4 through "Tocqueville in America," published in 1938 by a Yale historian. Fascinating. I'm hoping to meet a novelist with whom I can team for a screenplay about times then and now......
I subscribe to the daily New York Times and also the New Yorker magazine.
I love to garden and my backyard is filled with perennials.
I am a free-form traveler-- no itineraries except for maybe one big show with pricey tickets. I love theater, classical music, and museums.
