What I’m doing with my life
I'm taking a break from a long and successful marketing career in corporations and a non-profit. A recent three-week trip to southern Africa wilderness refreshed my spirit, and I'm currently consulting and exploring job opportunities. Work/life balance will be a priority, giving me plenty of time to spend with friends, outdoors, at the gym, and enjoying the best of the DC area.
I’m really good at
I've been really good at my job, leaving little time for other things.

I'm passionate about wildlife and African animals in particular. I've traveled to southern Africa every year since 1997, and I've learned enough about the wildlife to be a safari guide.

I'm a very good knitter, but don't worry, I won't embarass you with an ugly sweater that you'd feel too guilty not to wear.
