I am an independent journalist living and working in Santa Fe. When I'm not traveling, which I do quite a bit, I love to be outdoors hiking or sharing a meal with friends. I live in one of the most extraordinary towns in the world with clean air, beautiful blue skies and high mountains. My home is at the base of a ski mountain, and - perhaps more importantly - near a Japanese hot tub palace!
I'm quite relaxed and flexible about most things, love meeting new people, but am not fond of smoke or heavy drinkers. That said, my second favorite city in the world is Paris, which has a good amount of both. such is life. I'm a good communicator and appreciate the same in others. I don't believe in getting too stressed about anything, and despite being quite social I've noticed that I increasingly enjoy quiet time and being alone.
I love live music and dancing but seem to be able to enjoy any place I visit as long as it has good coffee and a view.
As a guest (and in life) I see myself as being extremely easygoing and independent. As a host I can be very friendly but also stay out of people's way. I speak English and French and can get along in Spanish if need be. In fact Mexico is another of my favorite places...
