I'm a writer and like most creative people I do many things. My passion for travel lead me to become a travel host for a travel club. I'm a nationally certified EMT for movies and TV, and if that isn't enough I'm also a professional supervised child visitation monitor.
I grew up in Yokohama, Japan where I was a model/actress. I was under contract to Buena Vista (Disney) and when the movie Snow White came to Japan I became Princess Snow White for 2 years traveling all over Japan for the film. It was my favorite job because I went to children's hospitals and orphanages with truck loads of gifts. It taught me that giving is joyful and fulfilling. I once was fluent, but too many years of no one to speak with it's now a lot of work for me to put a sentence together.
I love travel, photography which is a hobby, and I've had the good fortune to have my photographs published in 3 books. Love treasure hunting, cooking, reading, movies, exploring other cultures and am open to new experiences and adventures. I love tropical destinations, but must say Alaska's Inside Passage and the Grand Canyon are two places no one should live without seeing. I have many favorite books and must confess I'm a Harry Potter fan! Movies...Yep, love the romantic comedies! As far as the 5 things I can't live without: love, compassion, honesty, family and good health.
I'd say that I am basically a shy, private person and while I love people I don't drink or smoke so wouldn't say I'm a party-girl. As a host I'm pretty easy going. My spaces are all separate houses on one property so everyone has a lot of privacy and often we don't see each other unless one initiates a face-to-face meet. I'm the sort of person that if I have a party I certainly would invite my guests. I try to accommodate others; I had a guest who left this tux for me to return... he didn't even give me a review and I went out of my way quite a bit. I suppose that would be my pet peeve; people who are not appreciative when others extend themselves. Fortunately, most people are gems and a delight.
