A former reporter and editor for the Wall Street Journal, Business Week and Bloomberg News, I have lived in Brussels and London, and a number of U.S. cities, including Chicago, New York, Boston, D.C. and Seattle. Now in Sarasota with my ageing mom, I return to my hometown Chicago and my adopted town New York often. I am fundamentally urban, but also enjoy travel to the tiniest villages and hamlets in the world as well as grand cities. My photos are all within the last view years. The main one was taken last year at Chillfest in Sarasota. I'm disappointed when me who are my age or older dismiss me because they want younger women. I'm warm, witty, wise and willing to take a chance. You should be too.
