My short time in Miami has been rewarding, in that I have joined the Boards of two foundations - one that brings schools and technology to children (in Brazil, Colombia, and locally) affected by armed conflict, and one that provides social services for the elderly.
But what's my story, you ask. Well...
People can't believe I've had a circle of six best friends for more than 25 years, but I just have a knack for keeping folks together...an understanding of what makes people tick. It began with vacations in Miami, urging my parents to turn a blind eye when Grandma cheated at Scrabble & dumped restaurant rolls into her bag. With friends, I became the tour guide, leading them to Bahia for Carnaval, where we danced & drank Caipirinhas in front of 120,000 screaming Brazilians. I've saved friends from angry bouncers in Florence, sang and played guitar in Santorini, and danced tango in Buenos Aires. If you're into guys who make plans, open car doors, and pull out chairs for a woman, you and I just might get along.
