I am an executive at a large govt. arts agency where I've worked most of my adult life. I started at an entry level position and worked my way to the near top. I’m proud of my work to improve the public realm and privileged to have a job that challenges and stimulates me. I love what I do and am never bored. At a time when people move from one firm to another, my longevity at this agency surprises me, but it reveals other characteristics, my loyalty and stability.
My sons, 22 and 25 are smart, cool and funny and teach me about the best IPAs, weight lifting, investing and expand my knowledge of sports. I even know the difference between a slider and a knuckle ball. Our relationship continues to evolve. They have become wise as young adults. I am so happy about our closeness.
I like anything related to the arts. A passionate Alfa Romeo/ Italian car enthusiast, I own a 72 GTV 2000, which I've had restored again and again. It is my daily rider. I bought it in my 20s and can't imagine driving anything else, except a Guilietta Sprint Especiale or a 60's Ferrari. My interest in cars doesn't qualify me as a gear head; it's primarily from an aesthetic stylistic perspective. Musical tastes range from Cuban boleros to opera, classical, salsa. the Blues, Rock Roll and Jazz.
I love to travel but it is always great to be in my beautiful city. I've been to 30 countries and am proud that I traveled alone for 1 yr. in my early 20s to So. America. Favorite things include viewing and thinking about art, working out, walking through SF's neighborhoods, looking at the bay, the sea, anything blue, dressing up, listening to music, most recently Spotify, staying at home on chilly nights watching movies, warm weather, balmy nights, beach life, cooking for friends and family and drinking good wine. I've just learned to mountain bike and kayak. Still very much a novice.
I am a Giant's fan, been called a Gamer Babe, though I don't know every stat or most to tell the truth, but I've been told i look good with those colors all over me.
I am ready and delighted to try new things and push my own boundaries all the time. Fluent in Spanish, I also speak some Italian and can understand more French than I speak. Thanks for visiting.
