Let's see - Grew up on the East Coast and have been living in NY for over ten years now. I try to think of where else I'd like to live in this country but haven't hit upon anything better then this city. Despite all its drawbacks.
I love my work - not all the time but there are projects I get involved with that make it a pleasure to go in.
My dog is my buddy. Not my only friend because that would be depressing but it's the best part of the day when I come home and he greets me at the door.
And traveling. I do a lot of that. As much as I possibly can.
