I'm a sap. I'm sensitive. I'm half Swedish.
Immersing myself in that world has advantages. I have the opportunity to experience art on a day to day basis. I am surrounded by committed, passionate people who put everything into their work. True believers.
However, this doesn't mean that I am always in a dark room without windows. I grew up on a lake in NH. Growing up, vacations were to the city for museums and art. Now that I live in Boston, the lake house is my "house on the cape" and favorite vacations are to National Parks where I don't have cell service or internet.
I take living intensely to my work life as well. I'm open minded and find myself most at home on adventures and in deep, meaningful conversations. I've never been one to shy away from difficult conversations or taboo subjects. And, I don't judge or presume people's comfort or intentions as having some greater meaning of their character. I believe in giving people the benefit of the doubt and enjoying the ride.
Don't underestimate me and I won't underestimate you.
