Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
In search of new challenges -- both in myself and others.
Grew up in the Valley (I've been called a Unicorn since native
Angelenos are just as rare) and did the whole Jewish private school
thing until I decided to rebel and told my family I wanted to stare
at goyim in the locker-room rather than the rest of the tribe. Woe
is the shiksa goddess.
Went to UCLA and graduated with a degree in Psychology along with
minors in Sociology and LGBT Studies. Was a professional gay in
every sense of the word.
I started my own company a few years ago. Can easily play well with
others but there's something about setting my own schedule and
being accountable to myself that makes for a happier me. It's
exciting, scary and may have turned me into a workaholic but I've
found the sacred balance.
When I'm not working I love traveling (which is ironically work)
and being with friends. Love movies and television -- more the
lovable relate-able evolving characters than the time with Netflix
in the background watching my day go by. Have a knack for
memorizing lines and monologues -- can go either way annoying or
amusing loved ones...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Own a Travel Concierge Service ... think personal assistant meets
After six years as a Hollywood Writer's PA and a year as pearl
clutching blue haired headset wearing travel agent, I decided I
wanted something in the middle. No matter what, I enjoy being my
own boss. There's too much to do in life that happens between 9 and
Started grad school in Psychology for my MFT and am planning on
finishing the NASM certification in personal training ... At some
point. At the moment my business has put these on the back burner
until I have the spare time again.
Otherwise I enjoy traveling as often as possible, it's nice to be
able to say that I enjoy my work.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I love writing and humor. Perhaps in my spare time (what is this
SPARE time I keep referencing) I'll write the perfect novel or
script but try not to be "that" LA.
I've always been a people pleaser -- one way or another I like to
make sure the people in my life are happy. Still learning to
prioritize myself once in a while but otherwise I get a lot of joy
helping someone else.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The fact that I can instill a sense of humor into anything. I'd
call it a defense mechanism if it weren't something I consciously
took pleasure in. I like to laugh, I like to make other people
laugh ... yes I'll finally come out of the closet: I'm actually a

Wow ... just those huh? How does one choose a star from the sky or
grain of sand from the beach?
Wicked / Son of a Witch / Lion Among Men is a good start for me.
The three together tell the story of every lifetime and create such
reality from a world of fantsy. Really loved Kramer's Faggots and
Vidal's City and the Pillar. For the lighter stuff I loved Devil
Wears Prada and all of Weisberger's other books.
Movies could go on forEVER but for now I'll just be fun and go with
Troop Beverly Hills and First Wives Club.
Am pretty partial to the show Hairspray despite seeing it more
times than I care to admit. Also a huge fan of Suddenly Last
For food ... I'm pretty basic. Love great food and great wine.
Always ready to try a new adventure but happiest with a well
executed turkey burger and fries. Have started cooking a lot lately
so one of my favorites has been portobello mushroom raviolis in a
butter/cabernet reduction with cayenne and a dash of cinnamon with
grilled chicken mixed in.
One of my favorite restaurants is Bazaar ... Love the amazingly
different menu and the group engaging atmosphere.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(5) Egg Whites
(6) Five Senses
Had to laugh at this one and try to take it seriously but the last
couple years of my life (and a recent period that I've been without
a cellphone) have helped me realize what's important and that there
are very few things we can't live without.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where I want to go next ... what I'm really doing with my life ...
if I should be focusing on the problems of others or just working
on myself ... constantly assessing my goals ... what I could be
doing ... what I should be doing ... what did I have for breakfast
... do I have time to get to the gym ... did I reply to that email
... I haven't heard from her in a while ... wonder if I should sell
that artwork ... I need a maid ... it's all junk ... UGH STOP
THINKING AND GET TO YOGA!
It never stops ;-) This has been my stream of consciousness ... we
now take you back to our regularly scheduled program.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
out to dinner with great friends or finishing unpacking in a hotel
... either way I'm just as ready to tear up the town or spend a
night in relaxing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I drink milk straight from my carton at home. I live alone. Who's
going to come over for milk ... really.
Fine. *hides in corner*
I have a lot of private things to admit but I'm not hindered by
them. I'm an open book. Some chapters are more entertaining than
others but just the same they're all part of me and I'm happy to
share. I have a past that makes a Nascar flag look striped, can you
handle the ride?

future, it has yet to come. Concentrate on today, and make every
