I thrive on family, friends and optimism. My past includes writing (journalism and plays), auditing taxes and designing home merchandise for a major retail/catalogue store. Enjoy watching sports, especially the Olympics and am partial to playing ping-pong and Scrabble (add learning to play chess). I'm a public speaking coach, and a volunteer in the community. The University of Miami graduated me, an off-off-off-off Broadway theatre staged me and I'm looking forward to see who contacts me.
