I grew up in Northern California and moved to NYC in 1998. Since I've lived on the east coast I haven't owned a car, which has resulted in a lot of time spent in airplanes flying to far flung places! I enjoy traveling, especially in the tropics, reading and exercise (tennis, running, yoga, pilates). Professionally, I manage the client services division of a translation and legal services agency. Besides English, I speak near-native French and basic Portuguese.
