I am on the arty side and enjoy traveling. I studied at Georgetown and worked in the fields of health and education policy. I volunteer for the National Gallery as a school guide. I also enjoy movies and volunteer as a screener for the D.C. Shorts film festival. My favorite thing to do is to visit my son who lives in New York in the West Village and stay at the Jane Hotel on Jane street and on a warm day borrow a Jane bike and bike along the Hudson. I have a crush on the economist, Paul Krugman (I know he's married). I find his unabashed liberalism sassy and sexy. I read everything from art books to comics. I begin and end every day with a ritual of gratitude that includes coffee and chocolate.
