Hi and thanks for stopping by! I'm a creative visual spirit, a lifelong photographer and now videographer, who refused to follow the norm and work a 9 - 5 job. I also run a vacation rental on my property. And I have two tween daughters part time, and two dogs, all while living on an island no less. Dating! Schmating! Who has time?! No seriously... we make time, right? If the glass slipper fits... who can resist? "-]
I love looking at the irony, the paradox life so often brings. The trick is to laugh at as much as possible. Also, telling and listening to the many stories life offers, is a passion of mine. Its all about stories and lessons it seems. Schlamiel and Schlamazel.
My friends describe me as talented, smart, witty, snarky, sensitive, sophisticated, worldly, passionate, open minded, authentic and honest. Personally, I just feel boring.
I'm generally an open book with nothing to hide. I think we're all dealing with generally the same stuff life brings. That said, just say it like it is. I'm not a fan of keeping secrets. That invariably leads to misunderstandings and resentment and there's nuthin' funny bout that!
For fun, I like to be active hiking, dining, cooking, gardening, biking, motorcycling, or just chillin' out playing Scrabble. I do read and surf the net. I guess I'm a tad geeky that way, but I have to keep up with social media et al for my biz. I do love travel, and have recently done quite a bit for work. I'm spending three weeks in Rome and Tuscany this August, teaching photography for UW. It'll be my second year back.
I also ski, swim, play tennis, camp in my "glamper", work in my garden, create eye candy, be with my kids, and walk my two dogs. I'm game for most things. I just crave a best friend, and a lover who won't drive me crazy! Simple... right? Of course right!
