I am a labor & employment lawyer on the management side. I developed a passion for world travel when my first job out of law school was with an international food service corporation. I spent a good deal of time in Southeast Asia; although my travel outside the US is now on my own dime, I return to Southeast Asia as often as I can. My travel philosophy is "adventure by day, comfort by night" and I meet local people by spending lots of time in local markets and small shops. I collect folk art & old textiles; my home is decorated with my treasures collected over the past 30 years.
