I am a fun and loving person with an open mind and heart. I have a special passion for fine art and art history, and attend cultural venues and events regularly. I am a museum educator in a contemporary art museum in NY. I also have my own studio where I create work regularly, and have shown my pieces in museums, collections, and galleries all over the world . I am an avid traveler, and have lived in Korea, Spain, Italy, and Israel. When I travel I like to become part of the culture by studying or working in the country. In Korea I taught ESL to elementary school children, which I found very rewarding. In Spain I learned Spanish. In Italy I studied art history, and in Israel I went to Tel Aviv University. I have been known to throw enormous parties with huge quantities of food. I believe that everything in life can be explained with an example from an episode of the Simpsons, and I am always up to relax with a good film or novel.
