I was born and raised in the East Coast, and spent 11 years in the freezing midwest. I also studied and accumulated passport stamps from my home base in southern France, and served pizza in London. After all that, I moved to New York seventeen years ago, breathed in the air, the pace and diversity and knew this was home.
Here in the BK, I taught HS for a bunch of years, then decided to start an educational consulting firm eight years ago. It's been pretty amazing being an expert (education) and a novice (at business) simultaneously.
I have a daughter who rocks my world. Her father and I have a friendly relationship and she spends 50% of her time with him.
I've created a bit of a bucket list for the summer and am enjoying checking the items off the list (checking out a rooftop film, kayaking, seeing stand-up comedy, eating delicious food, dancing, attending MeetUps, doing DIY projects, traveling, jogging, meditating, working on the book I'm trying to write).
Sitting on the stoop with a cup of iced green tea and a great book is also a frequent occurrence.
And, in case you were wondering:
Yes, I've been dunked in a dunk tank while impersonating a police officer.
I once saved the life of someone who choked on a plastic frog.
As we know, chemistry has the final say for the most part. Just to put it out there, humor = very hot.
