I am a writer, swimmer, sewist, cat owner, and Auntie. I love expressing myself in many ways, whether I am writing a novel, making a quilt, knitting a sweater, trying to perfect a flip turn at the pool, or finding the perfect birthday gift. That is why I love living in New York City. There are so many different people with different ideas and ways of expressing themselves. I've lived here for over 20 years and I always find something new. I will be spending 2014 finishing my novel and finally finishing a few quilts for myself instead of for nieces.
I started my own writing and content strategy company last years, so during the day I usually work at home, unless I am rushing off to a meeting. During the rest of my life I like hanging with friends in restaurants, seeing what's new in the City, finding ways to do things in New York cheaply and for free, visiting my family, and traveling. My favorite places to visit are London, Zurich, the Isle of Mull, Helsinki, and Ohio. The places I'm most excited to go are Antarctica, Italy, Victoria Falls, Australia, Korea, and Belgium.
I grew up abroad and I love meeting new people. I have friends as far away as Shanghai and Belfast, and I have friends I've known since I was 5 years old and since the day I was born. I enjoy talking to people, hearing about their lives, and introducing them to my home.
