I am a marketing consultant with a masters in International Management who loves to travel (I have traveled to more than 40 countries). Some of my favorite destinations are Bali, Thailand, Costa Rica, France and Italy. I enjoy learning languages and speak French and Spanish, with some limited Italian and very limited Japanese. I also enjoy gourmet cooking whether it's French Country, Thai, Vietnamese, Mexican or California Cuisine. Other hobbies are hiking, biking, skiing, and wine tasting. I like traditional architecture, decor and gardens and have tried to have my house reflect that genre along with keepsakes from my travels.
