Maybe because I was born in Argentina, brought up in the USA and have been living in Europe for the past 30 years (currently in Berlin, Germany), travel and getting to know people of different cultures is in my blood. I thoroughly enjoy visiting local food markets and getting to know regional specialties - one of my mottos is, try anything twice and only then make a judgement of liking it or not. Interested in art, architecture, botanical gardens, cats, classical music and opera. In fact, I have based my career on these last 2 interests, not on stage but behind the scenes, in the production and organization end of things. I don't smoke and am not really allergic to anything, but I try to avoid anything with garlic and onions.
