I have a quick wit and like to find the irony in everyday life. I seek a new life partner, ideally one that enjoys long drives on winding roads in my Mini convertible, finding adventure in out of the way places in LA, and watching Casablanca multiple times. I just adopted a more or less four year old rescue Golden Retriever and like most dogs and even the occasional cat. I love to cook and love to eat, especially my own cooking. I just bought a new Tagine pan and would love to introduce you to the wonders of Moroccan cooking. I am self-employed as a grant writing consultant, which means I face endless overlapping deadlines with aplomb. Fortunately, I'm a very fast writer and never get writer's block. Also, I don't have to wear shoes when I work and my commute if from my bedroom to my home office. As a grant writer, my knowledge base is like an oil slick--very thin, but very wide. In many ways, being a grant writer is no more than being a story teller and I love to tell stories. I look forward to sharing some stories with you.
