I'm an outgoing person with an optimistic perspective. I enjoy my work as a free lance feature writer, writing profiles of interesting people and also writing about performing arts, which gives me a chance to attend plays, concerts, dance programs. But I balance this with relaxing evenings at home. I'm also involved in volunteer work as a mentor with the Philadelphia Futures program for high school students. Giving back is an important value at this stage of my life. So are my friendships and family relationships. As for interests, I enjoy theater, movies, music, travel. I also have a keen interest in liberal poltics. And I take pride in staying fit and working out regularly. .
