I am a HR and Learning Consultant with Accenture for the past 15 years. I have a background in elementary education. I moved to Sydney, Australia in 2006. I love the multi-cultural aspect of Sydney, the beaches and the laid back atmosphere. In my free time I enjoy cooking, wine tasting, diving, cycling, traveling, camping and photography. I've made Australia my home now and plan to get my citizenship in the coming months. People describe me as kind, reliable, and outgoing with smart sense of humour.
I enjoy travelling and have done so all over the US, UK, Europe, Philippines, India, Thailand and Australia. Next on my list is Italy, New Zealand, Malaysia, Korea, Japan, and China. My favourite movies are mysteries, smart romance, comedies, and any type of gangster movie. I love old classic movies in black and white. My top five are Cool Hand Luke, Good Fellas, Steele Magnolias, Something's Gotta Give and To Kill a Mockingbird. I like anything by Aaron Sorkin; I miss The West Wing.
My favourite food is Indian, Italian and Thai. I I tried to go vegan after living with a vegan for 2 years, though couldn't give up salmon and cheese, so the shift was a bit too extreme for me:)
I'm into all different types of music, and will not hesitate to listen to a live band playing anything. I enjoy live theatre and comedy shows. My favourite comedians are Amy Poehler, Kristen Wiig, John Stewart, Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Tina Fey, Dawn French, Steve Carrell and Will Ferrell. I love a good laugh.
I don't have a favourite author, though trust the best seller lists for good recommendations.
I don't really have a motto but like to follow the ole' cliché' which is to treat people the way I want to be treated. I try to connect with people who naturally give off an air of strong character and integrity. I like meeting people who have a good story to tell, and have a good positive energy.
