I was born and raised in New Orleans and still enjoy New Orleans things such as good food, costumes and laughing. I went back for two years to work on Katrina projects and be with my father.
Traveling and exploring new places and experiencing different cultures really feeds my curiosity and I want to visit Japan, hike in Scotland and go to Norway soon. It would be great to have a companion to travel with. Currently I am planning a hiking trip in the Dolomites this fall.
I like all sorts of outdoor activities and have tried or done most of them including, running marathons, mountain bike racing, trialthlons, skiing, snowboarding and rock, ice and mountain climbing. Now I only do a few of these sports and don't expect a partner to share my enthusiasm. I also like going to festivals, exploring and doing other visually stimulating/people watching activities.
I have fully embraced the technological age and like to keep my brain working and challenged. I am working on a blog, use Instagram and Apps and take lots of photos.
I've had many different seemingly unrelated careers and feel very fortunate in have had these opportunities. I used to run a big non-profit in San Francisco, manage a Ballet company, travel the country consulting on public/private partnerships, day-trade commodities and work at a Zoo, not in that order. I like volunteering and am currently involved with the National Parks.
I have a son who lives with his wife and my granddaughter here in Baltimore. I also have a daughter who teaches SCUBA diving and other activities. We are all closely connected.
Colorado is my second home and I spend time there, on and off, during the year to ski, hike, and just breathe the clean air. It is amazingly beautiful and pristine.
So, I think of my myself as having kind and generous southern sensibilities and a strong love of adventure. Generally, I am an optimistic person, I know how things might go wrong, but I assume they will go right. More, if and when we meet...
