Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
One day I will learn to edit better! Since I want to start off on
the right foot (and I'm honest), I want you to know that I'm 54.
I’m grateful for the wisdom - but not so much for the actual
number!! Well, at least I look younger (proof in person). With all
that said, I changed my age for search purposes.
I'm rather easy going and try my best to practice "simply living in
the moment." I've always had tremendous patience, perhaps due to my
artistic side. People have said that they admire my emotional
strength. I’m the go-to girl; the source of comfort for family and
friends who seek advice, because they know I will make them feel
better, no matter what. Maybe my storytelling skills (I'm a
producer) allow me to see things from a variety of perspectives and
not make immediate judgements or assumptions. So I may ponder and
let things breathe organically for a bit, which I think is a
strength. I'd like to think I'm a clear communicator and unafraid
to express how I feel and do that with kindness, respectfulness and
gratitude. Simply put, I treat people the way I want to be
I believe that taking care of one’s self is key and not a selfish
act - so when I have to self preserve, I allow myself time and
space and would do the same for someone else in need.
I have a spontaneous, goofy side and like to keep things fun.
Laughter is a key ingredient to a relationship, among many other
things. I feel fortunate that dating and sex come easily, but
having a deeper connection brings more value and joy.
In 2005, I had my most life altering moment to date - I became a
kidney donor for a close male friend and then had the unique
opportunity to share our story on Oprah. If I could do it again, I
would do it without hesitation.
I'm often asked why I'm still single and my response is: "Have you
ever lived in Los Angeles?" I basically gave up my dating life in
my late 20s-40s for my career. I can't dwell on the past, but I did
"grow up" there. I feel fortunate to be able to live and work in
NYC and experience a more balanced and hopeful life.
It’s never easy or simple, but one thing I know for sure - living a
wonderful happy life means there's no need to settle for anything
less than what we all want and deserve.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I love what I do for a living and that includes research: going to
comedy shows, watching TV and films, working with writers,
developing talent/ideas and creating opportunities. Among my
favorite things: I'm an avid self taught, fearless knitter (I'm not
afraid to make mistakes, rip them out and start over), reading,
working out, cooking/baking (healthy stuff or converting recipes
into healthy versions), walking around and exploring all the city
has to offer with friends or on my own.
