Family and friends are precious. I have 4 adorable nieces/nephews. Some of life's happiest moments are fleeting, but are always noticed and appreciated by me. I am an active listener who enjoys learning and well as sharing experiences and interests. Compassion, passion, ability to love and be loved are all part of me. Exercising (my brain and body), enjoying the company of family and friends, being outdoors or watching a movie with positive messages are all fun activities. I counsel individuals with special needs, and sculpt portraits (I love the work of Rodin). For work, I am a self-employed investment manager. I am sentimental while also keeping my sights on the present and the horizon.
