I am ever curious, which means I love to travel, to meet new people, to read, to explore the city, try new foods, see new art etc. I really love being outside -- hiking, running, skiiing -- and active. I enjoy the quiet, the scenery, and if I'm out of the city, the lack of cars and concrete. I am lucky to work in a job that I feel is important and that challenges me intellectually and otherwise every day. I'm pretty social and easy going; I've survived raising 3 kids to college age and a few other more harrowing experiences, so it takes a lot to rattle me. I believe in staying in the present and finding pleasure there.
