I am very spontaneous and love to travel. Some of my favorite places are in Italy (especially Florence and Venice), New York, Santa Fe, and Chicago. I enjoy live theater, opera, and Jazz. Sometimes I go to comedy clubs with my college-age son. I love to laugh. For fun, I study Italian and it is a personal goal to become fluent someday. I play golf in the warmer weather and ski in the winter. My favorite wine is brunello but I also like an ice cold vodka on the rocks. I'm fortunate that both my parents are alive and healthy and we are very close. They snow bird in Florida and I try to see them a couple of times during the winter - its also a good excuse to get in a couple of rounds of golf.
