The constant throughout my life has been curiousity. I love a variety of music, the arts, particularly photography, great books, good people and enjoy museums, galleries, concerts, theatre, movies, being outdoors - exploring nature, bicycling, hiking, walking, travel- locally and abroad (particularly developing countries and diverse cultures), and interesting conversation. I also enjoy quiet times at home, watching a movie, reading, cooking, listening to music, or inviting friends for an evening of good food, laughter and hospitality. I am fun and easy to be with, devoted to my family and friends, see humor in life's ironieis and open to new ideas and experiences. I have a strong social conscience and maintain a perspective beyond my own orbit.
